Salts & hashing for passwords

    Good evening all,

    I've been revisiting Thom McGrath's article regarding salting and hashing of passwords in Xojo here

    I have set this up and used it successfully a couple of times and have no issue with how it works.

    My question is this : Is there any signficant benefit to be gained from increasing the ByteCount (recommended at 64 in the article) or should I leave that alone and just use a really high iteration count ?

    Thanks.

    I don't think so.

    64 bytes is a lot to guess to find the right solution.
    So probably nobody will do that.

  3. That adds up, thanks Christian.
