Increase PBKDF Iterations...

6 posts in this topic

Please add the option for user selectable rounds. 24000 is WAY too low, and people should be able to increase it, regardless of the time-cost to access the data. This should be a user defined field in all applications, even if it's hidden behind an "advanced" tab.

Hi @h4waii,

The decision of 24000 iterations was taken few year back to ensure compatibility between all possible supported devices without any significant effect on performance . Now every device has more computing power and we certainly need to upgrade number of iterations. We are planning a major UI/database/sync engine redesign of Enpass next year, that will be perfect time to implement this.

+1 for this. Provide a sensible default and allow people to pick. If they want to wait a little longer for the app to open in exchange for more security, let them.
