Summary

Colin Percival invented the scrypt algorithm as the online service’s cryptoprotection to keep UNIX-like OS backup copies. The scrypt algorithm’s working principle is that it artificially complicates the selection of options for solving a cryptographic task by filling it with “noise.” This noise is generated randomly by numbers the scrypt algorithm refers to, increasing the time of work.
