I'm wondering about some of the semantics and security implications of using something like scrypt or bcrypt to "enhance" a password protecting a PGP private key. Essentially, I'm asking about the ...
I'm afraid I'll have tomatoes thrown at me for asking this old question, but here goes. After reading that cooking up your own password hash out of existing hashing functions is dangerous over and ...

Possible Duplicate: How to securely hash passwords? Do any security experts recommend bcrypt for password storage? What would you choose between: PBKDF2 SHA256 (270,000 iterations) ...
I've read here that hashing with differents algorithms would be a good idea. Can you confirm that? In your experience, is it useful and safe? Does it entail any security holes?
Given an option , which one should I choose , a HMAC for storing a password securely or a bcrypt or scrypt library?
Assuming that I'm doing password hashing properly and using bcrypt, scrypt or PBKDF2, how should I go about choosing an appropriate difficulty factor? i.e rounds for bcrypt, iterations for PBKDF2 and ...
This question made me start thinking about password hashing again. I currently use bcrypt (specifically py-bcrypt). I've heard a lot about PBKDF2, and scrypt. What I'm wondering is if there are any ...
