BCrypt is an adaptive cryptographic hash function for passwords. It incorporate a salt to protect against rainbow table attacks and is also an adaptive hash - over time it can be made slower and slower so it remains resistant to specific brute-force search attacks against the hash and the salt.
My apologies if this has already been asked. I recently became aware of the fact that bcrypt truncates passwords to 72 characters. Practically speaking my intuition is that this does not pose any ...
I am implementing a service where application-specific passwords seem a good choice to improve security. A question on why and when they might make sense has already been discussed here Google ...
I am writing a code to perform encryption and decryption using CryptEncrypt and CryptDecrypt functions, a part of Windows' Crypto API. Can anyone tell me what kind of encryption these two function ...
I'm experimenting with security, cryptography and web applications. My aim is to create simple login system that is realy secure enough. I'd like to share my approach to keep authenticated session ...
I'm fairly new to encryption, and I am investigating the different kind of encryptions. I want to encrypt passwords in a secure way. I discussed this with my colleague, and he said that BCrypt is the ...
