>  MessageDigest md = MessageDigest.getInstance( "SHA" );
>  md.update( text.getBytes() );
>  byte[] digestedBytes = md.digest();
> {code}
> Using text.getBytes() means that passwords outside of USASCII range are hashed with platforms
default encoding.  Which means that the userdatabase cannot be moved to another computer with
a default different encoding.
> Suggestion is to use UTF-8; that should be backwards compatible with the current case.
