ABN1
After migration from the old password mechanisms where passwords are stored in the users table without salt is complete, this flag should be set to false so that only authentication by the new method is possible
  • This is in software developer talk (ie. meant for developers and users that are configuring OpenEMR). There has been a question on the "users table without salt" part. Figured best to give a little backgrround to help the translators. A user's password is stored in the database as a hash, which is derived by a function that converts a password to this. The salt thing is a way to make the hash more secure. So, when the hash is created a salt(which is a string) is combined with the password to make the hash. Here's a quick article on this: http://crackstation.net/hashing-security.htm
  • If still at a loss as to what I am talking about, then just remove the "where passwords are stored in the users table without salt is complete" from your translation :)
