Let's assume that we have a secure PRNG. Is it "safe" to initialize it with password, or seed based on a password like SHA256(password)? If yes, is it "safe" to generate an RSA or DSA key from it? ...
i want to know what is the best pseudo-random number generation algorithm for passwords? for example my scenario is I have to generate 5K pseudo-random bits from a user-supplied password(6 ...
I'd like to combine a random key file with a password to generate a secure seed for a CSPRNG. The key file is assumed to have very high entropy, but the password will be whatever the user provides. ...
