Implementing Security and Cryptography
In this chapter you will investigate a critical part to any application, regardless of the framework you choose to use to develop it: security. However, not only will you investigate how to incorporate security features into your application, you will also get a unique perspective on how Node.js handles security and cryptography within its core and through third-party implementations.
You will examine various types of hashing algorithms that are available in Node.js, analyzing how they work and also for which applications they might be better suited than others. You will see solutions to verifying ...
