Knox E-FOTA On-Premises 22.04 release notes
Last updated July 26th, 2023
Updates to password hash algorithm
Previously, Knox E-FOTA On-Premises used the bcrypt password hash algorithm.
Starting with this release, passwords are now hashed with the PBKDF2 algorithm to offer more flexible password security measures for high-security enterprises.
Benefits of the PBKDF2 algorithm include:
- Longer salt length and key length — 128 bits or highe
- Higher key iteration count — 10,000 or highe
- Lightweight pseudorandom function (PRF) — HMAC-SHA256 or HMAC-SHA512
Password length configuration
To comply with enterprise security regulations, Samsung installation engineers can now set a minimum and maximum length for user passwords. By default, the minimum password length is set to 8 characters, and the maximum is set to 12. The minimum password length that an installation engineer can set is 8-20 characters. The maximum length can be 12-30 characters.
Existing user passwords are not affected by this change. However, when an old password is updated, the new password must conform to the current policy.
