I was wondering if SBB implemented any of the commonly used key derivation functions found in modern (or less modern) systems: scyrpt, bcrypt or even PBKDF2.

A grep search in the source code and scan of the documentation didn't turn anything but, before I start writing my own scrypt implementation, I'd like to be sure I'm not missing something obvious (like I almost missed the HMAC-SHA1 implementation a couple of weeks ago).

Thank you

PBKDF was in for some time but not usable from outside.

In SecureBlackbox 11 both BCrypt and PBKDF2 are available as public functionality.

Oh nice :) Thank you.

I know I'm pushing it but, is there any hope of scrypt making it into SBB 11 as well ?

Only if somebody pays for its implementation. You can also add an idea to the wishlist.
