Ameliorating Password Security Authentication Using BCRYPT Algorithm with Dynamic Salt Generation

Roman Alex F. Lustro

Usernames and passwords at present remain the ultimate frequently employed and far and wide recognized form of identity authentication. The password is one of the best-applied techniques of authentication. While it is precisely convenient to perform authentication using passwords, one thing that needs to be considered is how to store them securely. The aim of this study is to improve the existing password hashing scheme by introducing a new mechanism that will surely provide a more secure hashed password. Based on the simulated results of the study the proposed mechanism enhanced existing practice. The proposed scheme increases the level of security by proliferating the level of encryption. Thus, making it impossible for an attacker to break the system. Hence the proposed system is more efficient and has unbreakable security.
