Abstract or Summary:
This presentation offers a historical review of how password storage and hashing evolved over the past few decades. It also talks about modern, strong hashing functions like PBKDF2, bcrypt, and scrypt, along with their respective weaknesses. Finally, it offers guidance on characteristics that ideal key-derivation functions (KDFs) for password storage should have.
