I’m looking at a way to store client passwords etc on a sharepoint site.

Does anybody know how I would go about having the passwords stored in the DB with MD5, but unencrypted to the users viewing the site?

MD5 is a one way HASHing function - you can turn text > MD5 but not the other way around. – Ryan Sep 13 '12 at 9:04
