Engity stores passwords (and other secrets) using this award-winning hashing algorithm, which is currently one of the securest known algorithms for that purpose. Hereby, Argon2 is an improved password hashing function that offers a degree of "memory hardness" and password protection by using one-way encryption. It is suitable for applications with credential storage, key derivation, or any other purpose where password hashing is needed. Argon2 uses the XTEA encryption algorithm and 256-bit key to produce a 32-byte hash.
