[Owasp-leaders] Password Storage Cryptography

Hello folks,

I made a significant update to the password storage cheatsheet (hat tip 
to John Steven) to mention the winner of the password hashing 
competition, *Argon2*.


This is a fairly significant change beyond the standard recommendations 
of using a salted PBKDF2, bcrypt or scrypt - or HMAC's at scale.

If you're into this sort of thing, check out 
https://password-hashing.net/argon2-specs.pdf. Various crypto libraries 
are working on production class implementations now, and should be ready 
sometime in 2016/17. Worth putting on your radar.
