Is Salt, IV and Key necessary when encrypting password in a database using AES? If so, how should they be used?
Imagine I have a website with user accounts. I want to authenticate users, so I need to know if the password they provide matches the one stored in my database. To protect the passwords from prying ...
Why would you need a salt for AES-CBS when IV is already randomly generated and stored with the encrypted data?
I was looking at this code and came across these comments which says encrypting without a salt is insecure. Why would it be insecure when you are already using a random IV for each value? I think the ...
This question was also asked on StackOverflow, but with no answers, and I thought this may be a better exchange, since I have the same question. ...
I'm having trouble understanding AES and would like to know if encrypting the same text with the same key two times in a row should give the same output. Is there any salt or something that would ...
To help ensure uniqueness of IV's used in a CFB AES-256 cipher, software I know of gathers bits from various sources including the plaintext being enciphered, and runs that through an SHA-256 hash. ...
