I'm looking to encrypt files using secure hashing and encryption algorithms in Python. Having used bcrypt in the past, I decided to use it for my passphrase calculator, then pass the output through ...
I'm working on a private project where I need to store a users financial data in a database. I'll encrypt this data using AES, and I'll be using scrypt to generate a AES ecnryption key from a more ...
suppose we need/prefer 128 bit hash output. for example to generate a 128 bit encryption key or, in other applications (e.g. file integrity verifications), to consume less storage space. i don't know ...
With the advent of GPU-based computing, and now commoditized/dedicated SHA256 processors, what risk does this hardware pose to cryptography? What security algorithms should be closely watched or ...
Client-server encryption technique explanation (TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256, 128 bit keys)
I opened a web page using https. When I looked at the page info provided by my browser (Firefox) I saw following: Connection encrypted: High-grade Encryption ...
I was wondering what the effect on strength/security is If I would use an aggregate of multiple hash-functions. For instance, I don't want to sent passwords in plain text (although it's over an ...
