Here I am back with more updates on PBKDF2 with HMAC but this time I am talking about SHA-2 family of hashes which includes SHA-256 and SHA-512, both that to in standard .NET framework.

I have posted another article for implementing PBKDF2 with SHA-2 family for password hashing which has custom implementation of PBKDF2 as at that time this option was not available in standard .NET framework. Keep on reading
