stringPBKDF2Hash(textString)

Returns the PBKDF2 hash for specified text. This method is preferred above the old MD5 hash for enhanced security. It uses a default of 9999 iterations.

This will always be false: utils.stringPBKDF2Hash("test") == utils.stringPBKDF2Hash("test"). Because for the same string in multiply calls it will not generate the same hash. So you can only check it like this: utils.validatePBKDF2Hash("test",utils.stringPBKDF2Hash("test"))
