duplicated in Cryptography article as a section

This article is duplicated in the bigger article as a section, and it has also been edited since this was written. Need to consolidate and resolve differences of the two versions. Pat Palmer (talk) 17:42, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Notes from outside article to incorporate into this article

  • a good password hash is slow (and thus, "dictionary attack")
  • rainbow table - dictionaries and word lists pre-hashed (and sorted)
  • salt: a fixed-length cryptographically-strong random value
    • also needs to be creditial-specific
  • look 2/3 down the page: "how to create salts"
  • TLS with at least 128-bit AES encryption
