I can't find a way of specifying the hashing algorithm used by the PBKDF2 (the Rfc2898DeriveBytes class) implementation in C# System.Security.Cryptography. It seems to be just SHA1. Am I missing ...
I am trying to get a grasp of password hashing. Back in the days it seemed so simple, just MD5(password + salt) and you are done. Then md5 was proven to have collisions so people started moving to ...
I've read various opinions about whether Bcrypt or PDBKF2 is a better key derivation hashing method. The answer seems to depend on a lot of complicated factors that are not easy to analyze. Would ...
We hesitated between BCrypt and PBKDF2 for password hashing. In many forums and blogs people say something like "In their Special Publication SP 800-132 NIST basically recommends using PBKDF2 for ...
I'm looking at two comprable pieces of software which need to encrypt data on disk using a passphrase. One uses PBKDF2 to generate the encryption key from a passphrase, while the other uses two rounds ...
I am wondering if a biometric device can be used to generate some entropy or key material that would be stable across each authentication. The contrary would be for biometric devices to act like an ...
