This package implements part of PKCS 5 which is, according to the [wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PKCS), a Password-based Encryption Standard. The derivation algorithm PBKDF2 is implemented as a class in this package.

## Synopsis

```
  use PKCS5::PBKDF2;

  my PKCS5::PBKDF2 $p .= new;

  $spw2 = $p.derive-hex(
    Buf.new('pencil'.encode),
    Buf.new( 65, 37, 194, 71, 228, 58, 177, 233, 60, 109, 255, 118),
    4096,
  );

  is $spw2, '1d96ee3a529b5a5f9e47c01f229a2cb8a6e15f7d', '4096 iteration hex';
```
