MySQL PASSWORD() function in JavaScript


If you need to implement a MySQL PASSWORD() function in JavaScript - use http://code.google.com/p/crypto-js/#SHA-1 with 2 encodings.

Here is an example:

var password = "TestPassword";
var result = ("*"+CryptoJS.SHA1(CryptoJS.SHA1(password))).toUpperCase();
console.log("result : " + result);

Result will be *0F437A73F4E4014091B7360F60CF81271FB73180. If you check it with MySQL password() it will be the same:

mysql> select password("TestPassword") as result;
+-------------------------------------------+
| result                                    |
+-------------------------------------------+
| *0F437A73F4E4014091B7360F60CF81271FB73180 |
+-------------------------------------------+
