Hashing password

#1

Hi, i was trying to generate some passwords for the node-red editor and when i ran the "node-red-admin hash-pw" command with some password i noticed that every time i ran it it throws different hashes for the same pw, is this correct?

Yes. It uses the BCrypt hashing algorithm - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bcrypt

Hi knolleary,
I came into the same situation but for me different hashes don't work.
I've also written here

Do you have any suggestion?
Thanks
Marco
