How to use password hashing with salt in security.yml

Go To


I need random salt to hash password with users in file security.yml, not database. What i need to declare in "encoder" section to use salt in password hashing?

I think the phrase "random salt" might need some explanation. It sounds like if you're randomly generating the salt, you'll never be able to validate a password.

Are you generating a single random salt that's stored in security.yml and you want to use that against all passwords in your system - Asa Ayers 2012-04-04 06:13

no, it's randomly once - at generation. You can remove word "random" from my message if you wan - Neka 2012-04-05 09:52


I think you shoud implement your own encoder logic by providing a service

       class: Acme\TestBundle\Service\CustomEncoder

It must implement Symfony\Component\Security\Core\Encoder\PasswordEncoderInterface

After that add this class to security.yml

         id: custom_encoder
