I am storing in my database the user password hash and salt.
I would like to know if putting together hash and salt in the same field is adding complexity to a potential hacker who had access to the database?
h:hash and S:salt hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhSSSS
And even like this:
Positions of salt octets will be chosen arbitrary, and hash and salt will be reconstructed at runtime.
Is it useful? Or completely useless?
