-              The definition of HKDF allows the caller to supply an optional pseudorandom salt
-              value, which is used as the key during the extract phase. If this value is not
-              supplied, an all zero string is used instead. However, support for an explicit
-              salt value is not widely implemented in existing APIs, nor is it required by
-              existing usages of HKDF. Should this be an optional parameter, and if so, what
-              should the behavior be of a user agent that does not support explicit salt
-              values (is it conforming or non-conforming?)
