Add support for user password encryption algorithm selection

Reported by: Sam Reghenzi Owned by:
Component: contrib.auth Version: dev
Severity: Normal Keywords: password encryption
Cc: Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: yes Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


User class in django/contrib/auth/models supports crypt algorithm in decoding password but not in the set_password method (see line 175). User password encryption algorithm should have a default but also but also configurable in project settings.

Project settings SECRET_KEY should be used in the encryption since all the data needed for brute force cracking are available in a db dump
