Increasing password security

Passwords are an important part of any database security system. To be secure, passwords must be difficult to guess, and they must not be easily accessible on users' hard drives or other locations. SQL Anywhere passwords are always case sensitive. You can specify a function used for password authentication with the verify_password_function option. See verify_password_function option.
