Detailed Description : PKCS#5 v2.0 Password-Based Key Derivation

This implementation takes a passphrase and a salt (and optionally an
iteration count, a digest module, and a MAC module) and provides a
file-like object from which an arbitrarily-sized key can be read.

If the passphrase and/or salt are unicode objects, they are encoded as
UTF-8 before they are processed.

The idea behind PBKDF2 is to derive a cryptographic key from a
passphrase and a salt.

PBKDF2 may also be used as a strong salted password hash.  The
'crypt' function is provided for that purpose.

Remember: Keys generated using PBKDF2 are only as strong as the
passphrases they are derived from.
