Salt in the Wound

What are you doing?


I'm re-salting the password hash. You know, because of the security breach last week.


That was a thyming attack.

In cryptography, a salt is something extra that you add to your one-way hash function. But I recently learned that there is also pepper as well! It's similar to a salt, but isn't stored with the hashed output.

At first I thought, maybe we're taking the spice analogy too far. But then I thought, the most secure system will have 11 herbs and spices.
