Swift Language Password Based Key Derivation Calibration (Swift 2.3)


Example

See Swift 3 example for usage information and notes

func pbkdf2SHA1Calibrate(password:String, salt:[UInt8], msec:Int) -> UInt32 {
    let actualRoundCount: UInt32 = CCCalibratePBKDF(
        CCPBKDFAlgorithm(kCCPBKDF2),
        password.utf8.count,
        salt.count,
        CCPseudoRandomAlgorithm(kCCPRFHmacAlgSHA1),
        kCCKeySizeAES256,
        UInt32(msec));
    return actualRoundCount
}

Example usage:

let saltData       = [UInt8]([0x73, 0x61, 0x6c, 0x74, 0x44, 0x61, 0x74, 0x61])
let passwordString = "password"
let delayMsec      = 100

let rounds = pbkdf2SHA1Calibrate(passwordString, salt:saltData, msec:delayMsec)
print("For \(delayMsec) msec delay, rounds: \(rounds)")

Example Output:

For 100 msec delay, rounds: 94339
