The "pbkdf2" Module

Description

This module allows other modules to generate PBKDF2 hashes.

Configuration

To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="pbkdf2">

<pbkdf2>

The <pbkdf2> tag defines settings about how the pbkdf2 module should behave. This tag can only be defined once.

Name Type Default Value Description
iterations Number 12288 The number of iterations of the hashing function that should be performed.
length Number 32 The length of the derived key.
Example Usage
<pbkdf2 iterations="12288"
        length="32">

The <pbkdf2prov> tag defines settings for a specific hash algorithm. This tag can be defined as many times as required.

Name Type Default Value Description
hash Text None Required! The name of the hash algorithm to configure.
iterations Number 12288 The number of iterations of the hashing function that should be performed.
length Number 32 The length of the derived key.
Example Usage
<pbkdf2prov hash="sha256"
            iterations="12288"
            length="32">
