    So what is the problem? What do you mean by "it wouldn't load my class library"? Are you getting an error about a missing assembly or that an assembly could not be loaded?

    What do you mean by "nothing shows"? What were you expecting to see?

    So what does "'calculator2.Calcualtor' does not contain a definition for 'WriteText'" tell you? That means you need o define methods as noted by aidenkael.

    Post the actual error text. Copy and paste it out of the error pane in Visual Studio (if you are using Visual Studio), or from the console if you are using the command line compiler. (Sorry, I don't know how to get the errors out of MonoDevelop.)

    I know exactly what the issue is, but the point here is to get you to examine the error and learn how to parse and understand it. It's one of the skills a programmer needs to learn is understanding error messages. The first step is examining the actual text like a developer, instead of just throwing up your hand in the air when an error box pops up like a regular user.
  4. In Topic: How secure is my stored password

    Posted 4 Mar 2015

    Because sometimes he treats his salt like a C string, and so if the randomizer generates a 0 in the middle of his salt he'll end up losing the rest of his salt when he passes it like a C string to std::string. In reality, he should treat his hash as an array of bytes (e.g. vector<unsigned char>)and not assume that it is a C string. When its time to persist to the database, either use a built in column type that accepts binary blobs, or Base64 encode the salt and then store it as a string.

    Next, your 256-bit salt is weak. Notice that you are only ever using the lower 7 bits, and of those lower bits, you don't use all the possible bit combinations.

    But in the end this really doesn't matter since your assumption is that the attacker can do an offline attack knowing what the salt is. So it doesn't matter if the salt is 1 bit or 1024 bits.

    The question is, does the attacker know how the salt is applied to password?

    Assuming the answer is yes, then your storage's strength is a strong as its defense against a dictionary attack. For a rainbow table attack, the bad guys can filter down the tables to use just the ones that already match the salt at the expected positions.
