Selecting a new key derivation function for disk encryption

Many full disk encryption applications rely on a strong password-based key derivation function to process a passphrase. This article defines requirements for key derivation functions and analyzes recently presented password hashing functions (second round finalists of the Password Hashing Competition) for their suitability for disk encryption.
