I believe JtR allocates a buffer, and copies it (based upon the > format's salt_size, which is usually set by SALT_SIZE being assigned to it). Understood. Will this internal saving work if the salt is complex nested data structure with some variables (in the nested structures) being dynamically allocated. I tried implementing "custom-salt" for mozilla format with no luck so far. -- Cheers, Dhiru
