def  gensalt 
OpenBSD Blowfish password hashing. This module implements the OpenBSD Blowfish password hashing algorithm, as described in "A FutureAdaptable Password Scheme" by Niels Provos and David Mazieres. This system hashes passwords using a version of Bruce Schneier's Blowfish block cipher with modifications designed to raise the cost of offline password cracking. The computation cost of the algorithm is parametised, so it can be increased as computers get faster. Passwords are hashed using the hashpw() routine: hashpw(password, salt) > hashed_password Salts for the the second parameter may be randomly generated using the gensalt() function: gensalt(log_rounds = 12) > random_salt The parameter "log_rounds" defines the complexity of the hashing. The cost increases as 2**log_rounds.
def bcrypt.gensalt  (  log_rounds = 12  ) 
Generate a random text salt for use with hashpw(). "log_rounds" defines the complexity of the hashing, increasing the cost as 2**log_rounds.
