So I've been toying with the idea of having non-deterministic salt values for hashes. Let me explain what I mean: Basically, I applied some properties from Bitcoin including a "difficulty" (ie, ...
We have a sample scenario and we would like to receive some feedback and some solutions regarding possible security schemes. First of all, lets imagine a real world scenario: Imagine that a user ...
I've asked a few questions relating to schemes for various security-related functions, and posited schemes to accomplish those goals. In the responses, I see a conflict between two fundamental ...
Why shouldn't we create our own security schemes? I see a lot of questions around here about custom crypto and custom security mechanisms, especially around password hashing. With that in mind, I'm ...
