Salt (cryptography)

Par Cryptomcmillan1 | Mis à jour le May 24, 2020
In cryptography, a salt is the additional random input that is added to password or passphrase to make the password hash unique. It prevents from the hashed output password to be cracked so easily by the hacker. When you salt your password, the function will be Hash (salt | password), instead of Hash(password).
