Date: Mon, 28 Mar 2011 22:12:07 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: crypt-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: welcome Hi, This is our new mailing list for discussing the project described as a GSoC 2011 "idea" as follows: http://openwall.info/wiki/ideas # New password hashing method for servers (full scope exceeds one summer, so the task may be split in two or three) * New crypt(3) flavor using concepts of scrypt (not only iterations, but also parallelism and memory), optionally making use of AES-NI * GPU or/and FPGA accelerated password hashing on servers (to better compete with similarly accelerated or distributed offline password hash cracking), optional local parameterization on specific hardware (parameter unreadable from host OS) I suggest that we start by discussing "high-level" stuff (such as the "context" for this project: what already exists and why there's room for something new), then go into detail.
