concatenate a MD5 string with another
I Have a MySQL query that i want to send to a different page. To make it secure before it is sent I am MD5()ing the string. Then sending the data using sessions.
When the second page receives the string i want to add a new string to the end of the MD5() string. Basically to change the where clause
Not sure if MD5 is the best way to encrypt or if there is a better way to move variables other than a session.
$q = "SELECT Field_1, Field_2 FROM `some_table`";
$_SESSION['query'] = md5($q);
Any ideas would be very appreciated!
$q = $_SESSION['query'];
$query = $q . " WHERE Field_1='123';";
$run = @mysqli_query($dbc, $query);
//get info from database.....
