Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HASHING OBFUSCATION
Abstract:
Systems and methods for improving password security are proposed. A password entered by a user of an electronic device is hashed with a hash instructions to create a digest. The digest is then obfuscated in accordance with the methods disclosed herein by rearranging the bits comprising the digest, to create an obfuscated digest. The obfuscated digest may then be used to authenticate the user. This method decreases the likelihood of hacking or malicious interference.
