    Description

      Now zabbix use bcrypt hashing user passwords. Compared to PBKDF2, bcrypt has a fixed output size, which makes it less than perfect for generating encryption keys from passwords.

      Moreover, PBKDF2 consumes less cpu and memory which is more friendly with resource limited situation.

      Please add PBKDF2 as a choice when storing user password in database.
