- How to securely hash passwords? 12 answers
So I have been working on password storage, especially on the algorithms to use (and to not use).
Most people are recommending scrypt or PBKDF2 for valuable reasons, but I have not seen any talks about the sha_crypt algorithm so far. What are the pros and cons of using this algorithm, and why do people prefer bcrypt/PBKDF2/scrypt to it?
