All passwords are secure, we have built this web application using Ruby on Rails and we use the Bcrypt gem to hash passwords.

Bcrypt has a significant advantage over a simply salted SHA-256 hash: Bcrypt uses a modified key setup algorithm which is timely quite expensive. This is called key strengthening and makes a password more secure against brute force attacks since the attacker now needs a lot more time to test each possible key.
