Abstract or Summary:
In this talk jOHN takes apart password protection scheme analyzing the attack resistance of hashes, hmacs, adaptive hashes (such as script), and encryption schemes. First, we present a threat model for password storage. Then audience members will learn the construction, performance, and protective properties of these primitives. Discussion of the primitives will be from a critical perspective modeled as an iterative secure design session.
Ultimately, this session presents the solution and code donated as part of the on-going OWASP PSM (password storage module) project. Discussion of this solution will include key techniques for hardening PSM learned through years of delivering production JavaEE code to customers.
