I want my source code not to contain the text password on itself. so how do i implement above thing for a password input check(authentication) or a login system like below one?

I mean how to combine them to get a secure login

int main() 

string pswd ="";
char inpt;
cout << "Enter password\n";

inpt = _getch();

 while(inpt != 13)     

      cout << '*';
      inpt = _getch();

   if(pswd == "testing")
      cout << "\nAccess granted :P\n";
      cout << "\nAccess aborted...\n";

return 0;

1st: Store the password in a file. Read it in for the compare.
2nd: For more security, encrypt the password somehow. Decrypt it before comparing.


I do not know how to store password to files. I a new C++ coder.
and a more spedific asnwer would be appreciated.


You need to implement a system that works like this:

  • Create The Username/Password Text File
  • When storing the Username/Password have, store it in it's encrypted state.
  • When the User tries to login, take the variable entered, encrypt it, compare it against the encryption in the text file.
  • Act on comparison.

Does this help at all?
