How to saving salt


maybe, in the signup process,
( I using express.js, MySQL, Sequelize )

  1. get ID and PW at Front-end
  2. saving ID in DB
  3. hashing the pw with salt
  4. save hashed pw in DB

can I use salt used before?

when some user log-in this server,
their PW will be hashing and compair with DB data.
but salt is just random..
so I wanna save salt value!


If you’re using bcrypt

const salt = bcrypt.genSaltSync(12)
// Continue whatever user saving happens here with salt

Other libraries may also have these functions, generate a salt, use it as the parameter of hashing
