The get_salts Function

get_salts("Max Pichler", "username", "password")
returns one or more salt values which are based on the account holder's name, here: Max Pichler.

Alternative: If you trust that we will not store IBANs or account names, you can make your life easier by using the function submit_iban instead of the functions get_salts and submit_hashes.

Purpose: This function returns one or more salt values which are based on the account holder's name. Use this function in conjunction with submit_hashes if you would like to contribute to our collection of IBAN hashes without submitting any actual IBANs. The reason why we create more than one salt is that we want to have some robustness against slight variations in the account holder name. To this end, we perform some normalization, and we also create different salts from different parts of the account holder name. As a result, at least one salt will likely be the same even if the account holder name is given in variants such as "M. Pichler" or "Pichler, Max" or "Max Pichler".

Input Parameters:

  • account_holder: xsd:string
    The name of the holder of an account whose hashed IBAN you plan to submit using the function submit_hashes.
  • user: xsd:string
    The user name with which you log in to
  • password: xsd:string
    Your password.

Output Fields:

tns:GetSaltsResStruct with the following fields:

  • result: "OK" if no error has occured. Otherwise, an error message in natural language.
  • salts: An array of one or more salt values.
