I have completed an entry level programming class, so I do have some programming experience. I can at least grasp concepts that I am going to inquire.

How do you develop a secure username password authentication system?

Where do you store passwords on a web server? I am using godaddy hosting. If passwords are stored, unencrypted, aren't they able to be delved into by hackers? Does storing passwords in some type of file extension keep them secure? If I must encrypt data, how do I do this? I do not know any encryption methods or algorithms. Is there modules or functions available that have these methods.

How do I secure the password entry field so that one may not copy and paste the password onto the notepad or something similar. I am speaking from the user's standpoint not a hackers.

How do I assure that a user automatically logs out when the browser is closed?

If there are tutorials or guides readily available that answer these questions that would be a nice remedy. Also, this is my first post, so I am glad to become part of this forum and hope to help contribute after I do some learning.
