Cryptography Salt

Overeating salt leads to frequent visits to the restroom, dizziness or fluctuating blood pressure. However, salt is healthy in the world of cryptography.

It’s easy for attackers to crack your passwords even with hash values. Consider salt as a random number that blends your password to a one-way cryptography hash function like SHA256. It’s crucial not to reuse the same salt to avoid the same bland recipe.

Use a variety of salts for every password. Long salt (long numbers) is nutritious for security; while you may regret using short salt and may also not taste great.
