Quick question, anyone got a good scheme for key stretching?


Yeah, that's a weaker simplification of the method I've always
advocated, stopping the hash function before the final
MD-strengthing and repeating the input, only doing the
MD-strengthening for the last step for each key.  I used this in
many of my specifications.

In essence, the MD-strengthening counter is the same as the 0xnn
counter they used, although longer and stronger.

This assures there are no releated key attacks, as the internal
chaining variables aren't exposed.
