[opensuse-security] ::crypt system call slow for blowfish encryption
Hi All,

As learned from various sources on the internet, a modified version of
blowfish uses key stretching to fight dictionary attacks for
passwords.

I would request somebody to confirm that, the slowness of the crypt
system call in SuSE for blowfish is due to the same reason or similar.

Thanks.
