generateSCryptHash

It is a salted password-hashing cryptographic function that takes an input and hashes it into a fixed size output.
NOTE: This function is less secure than BCrypt.

generateSCryptHash(plaintext,options); → returns string

This function requires Adobe ColdFusion 2021 and up.  Not supported on Lucee, etc.

generateSCryptHash Argument Reference

plaintext string
Required

The input string to hash.

options struct
Default: {"memorycost":8,"CpuCost":16348,"Parallel":1,"KeyLength":32,"saltLength":8}

A struct containing the optional values:
--memorycost - Default is 8.
--CpuCost - CPU cost of the algorithm (as defined in scrypt, this is N) that must be a power of 2 and greater than 1. Default is currently 16,348 or 2^14.
--Parallel - the parallelization of the algorithm (as defined in scrypt, this is P). Default is currently 1.
--Keylength - key length for the algorithm (as defined in scrypt, this is dkLen). Default is currently 32.
--saltLength - length of the salt to use. Default is 8.
