"When Michael Gove said that the country has had enough of experts, he was in part expressing a truth." Ironically it is the very people who despair of people not paying attention to facts and experts, who keep using this quote to sum it up - when it's not what Gove really said (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGgiGtJk7MA for what he did say). Even more ironic is that what he said has so far proven more accurate than the forecasts from the 'organisations with acronyms' that he was talking about.
Good post but talking about hash functions being broken when your authentication system is a password is basically rearranging the deckchairs on the titanic. Passwords are broken much, much worse than MD5 is broken. Anybody with data to protect that thinks they can't tolerate the compromise of a password, probably shouldn't be using a password. Any user relying on a password should assume it will be compromised and be ready to change it.
