The Hash Salt
Kartris uses a process called hashing to scramble passwords within the database. To ensure that each Kartris installation scrambles these in a unique way, we generate a random code during installation which is used during the hashing process. In this way, the same password stored on two different Kartris installations will be hashed into a completely different value. This value will be stored in the web.config file later.
We recommend using the default random value generated unless you are setting up a store to use existing data that was hashed already with another hash salt value. In that case, the setup routine will pull the hash value from the web.config.
