What kind of application are you developing? WinForms? Also, what kind of data store are you using to store user details? (e.g. SQL Database) and the level of security really depends on how much you value the data

Not a complete answer, but there are some notes on passwords here: Password Storage: How to do it.[^]
You also want to look at avoiding SQL Injection attacks by making absolutely sure you use Parametrized queries: MSDN can help[^]

Above all, remember that universities are full of <shudder>students</shudder> - possibly the laziest people on the planet, except when it comes to making other people's lives a misery. They will try to destroy your app so you need to be careful to check, check, check and then use exception handling anyway. Oh, and test everything! Three times.
