1 - About

Key derivation function transform a password or passphrase into a key.

The fastest function to transform a password into a key is to ignore the password and return the zero key.

3 - List

  • PBKDF2 (with a work factor of > 100,000) is fine, if aging.
  • Better are scrypt or argon2, again with appropriately-sized work factors.
  • bcrypt (Password/Passphrase hash)
