comment What's the most secure way to derive a key from a password repeatably?
Hm... I think I at least partially misunderstood precisely what PBKDF2 was for while I was setting this up.

The salt is the same for each user right now, but it occurs to me that I could probably change that by deriving it from their username somehow, if that would help. I guess "true random" might be a bit of an exaggeration, I'm talking about the key generated after a minimum of 4500 iterations (not 45000) of PBKDF2.

Ah, thanks for the formatting. It threw me off a bit to see that HTML tags were supported (and necessary) here.
