comment Are salted SHA-256/512 hashes still safe if the hashes and their salts are exposed?
@ThomasPornin I didn't realize that, thanks. I will have to take a closer look at bcrypt.

The work performed by bcrypt in key deriving a key is the same as PBKDF2, so hardware should affect both equally. You may be thinking of scrypt, which is designed to defeat memory optimization.
