A salt is simply a string you use to "seed" the hash to make it more difficult to decrypt using rainbow tables or brute force. The decrypting end must also know your salt string to decrypt it.

The php version returns a warning message that I am not using a salt, which reduces security. Ok, but I can’t find info about how to create and use salts. What are the parameters needed to make a salt, and do I have to do anything to my decode script in php to make it recognize the salt?
