    This is fantastic! I just clocked 19.4M rounds per second. It couldn't come at a better time either. Yes, LibGCrypt will be available by default on all Debian-based Linux system since their package manager uses GnuPG to verify their package keys. I don't know if all RPM-based systems have it by default (I haven't used one in a very long time), but even if it's not by default, I'm sure most systems will have GnuPG installed for one reason or another anyway. Looking at the speed it's getting, I'm pretty...

    There is almost a 2.5 fold difference in performance between the version shipping with Linux Mint (2.32 DEV) and the one posted above (it calls itself 2.36 DEV 170827). On a 50 million iteration database in Linux: 2.32: 61s (820k rounds per second) 170827: 27s (1.8M rounds per second) It's a lot better, but still a long ways behind native code: KeepassX: 1.3s (38M rounds per second) So it is still behind native code by a factor of 20. I avoid dot net like the plague myself (for pretty much the very...

    Hi Dominik, Thanks so much for linking that report and for the work on the new version. I'll comment further there.

    The official Debian/Ubuntu/Mint distributions of KeePass are very slow on the encrypt/decrypt. Comparing the dot net KeePass to a native program called KeePassX shows KeePass to be slower by close to a factor of 50. This is significant, because the number of rounds performed directly affects security. Are the encryption primitives used by KeePass also written in dot net? Is there a way to speed it up? The people who would attempt to brute force a password file won't be using wildly inefficient encryption...
