Encryption using SHA1 of User ID and Password
 
I am creating a blackberry application which sends the request to the server. So authentication of the user is required here. So for doing this i want to hash UserID and password using SHA1 in blackberry. The hashed data is encoded and then passed to the server for authentication.
My problem is how do i implement this. Can someone give the sample code for implementing this in blackberry.
Thanks

You need to post in the Developer section.

Code:

String userid, password;
...
SHA1Digest sha1 = new SHA1Digest();

sha1.update(userid.getBytes(), 0, userid.length());
byte[] userHash = new byte[sha1.getBlockLength()];
sha1.getDigest(userHash, 0, true);

sha1.update(password.getBytes(), 0, password.length());
byte[] passHash = new byte[sha1.getBlockLength()];
sha1.getDigest(passHash, 0, true);
