Welcome to scrypt

This is a Haskell library providing bindings to Colin Percival’s scrypt implementation. Scrypt is a key derivation function designed to be far more secure against hardware brute-force attacks than alternative functions such as PBKDF2 or bcrypt.

Details of the scrypt key derivation function are given in a paper by Colin Percival, Stronger Key Derivation via Sequential Memory-Hard Functions: PDF.
