Password-based Key Derivation

This web page with associated JavaScript allows a user to enter a password and derive a key for symmetric encryption from it.

This example is provided to illustrate how to use the W3C Web Cryptography API to perform password based key derivation. It is based on the candidate recommendation of the standard available when this example was created.

Using this example requires a web browser that implements a compatible version of the Web Cryptography API and the Encoding API. When the example was created, current versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera browsers could run the example.

This is not intended to be a production tool. Rather, it may be helpful to developers who intend to create their own tools using the Web Cryptography API.
