the program image (16) corresponds to a portion of the program and the vinegar (32) comprises a sequence of bytes, which, when combined with the program image, cause a modified hash value.

computing a salt (18) during build-time of the program based at least in part on a portion of sensitive data (14), the program image (16), and the build-time hash (20).

This secret variable is herein after referred to as a “vinegar”, and it is combined with the image before the hash is computed.

Definition of Salt: An arbitrary value that, when combined with a hash value, produces an expected, meaningful result (e.g. a function address).

Definition of Vinegar: A sequence of bytes combined with the image, which will effectively cause a modified hash value.

method of protecting sensitive data comprising the steps of during build time, hashing an image to produce a first hash, combining sensitive data with the first hash to form a salt, storing the salt and at runtime, hashing the image to produce a second hash, retrieving the salt, combining the second hash and the salt to recover the sensitive data.
