Performance Analysis of Some Password Hashing Schemes

Donghoon Chang and Arpan Jati and Sweta Mishra and Somitra Kumar Sanadhya

Abstract: In this work we have analyzed some password hashing schemes for performance under various settings of time and memory complexities. We have attempted to benchmark the said algorithms at similar levels of memory consumption. Given the wide variations in security margins of the algorithms and incompatibility of memory and time cost settings, we have attempted to be as fair as possible in choosing the various parameters while executing the benchmarks.
