PBKDF2 (for Password-Based Key Derivation Function 2) is a password-based key derivation algorithm. It is often used to store passwords securely.
PBKDF2 takes a password and salt/salt (a random string of characters) as input, then applies a hash function (usually SHA-1, SHA-256, or SHA-512) iteratively (the number of iterations /rounds is configurable).
Example: PBKDF2() function with sha256 algorithm for password password with salt salt and 1000 iterations returns ba10bd7df33a80626ef566c768b6437f6080cc587e53cbbb297bf009eb31c631
The only way to decipher a hash encoded by PBKDF2 is therefore to try all the passwords, with all the salts.
Since this work is gigantic and endless (several years) with a sufficiently long salt chain and a large number of iterations, dCode does not offer this functionality.
The data generated by PBKDF2 is binary, often stored as hexadecimal values whose length depends on the algorithm used.
The Python library Passlib offers a storage format: $pbkdf2-algo$rounds$salt_b64$hash_b64
The Django CMS uses a similar format: pbkdf2_algo$rounds$salt$hash_b64
