Today i tried using _CryptoNG_PBKDF2 Function of CryptoNG.au3 UDF 490-cryptong-udf-cryptography-api-next-generation 

Unfortunately, i keep getting the wrong salted Password!

#include <CryptoNG.au3>

$pass = "[test]"
$salt = "fd4b1e6ad1b05db6ff288928fed3005ef4fdc9ade8be276220a8f41adcccda29"

ConsoleWrite('pass: '&@TAB&@TAB&$pass&@CRLF)
ConsoleWrite('salt: '&@TAB&@TAB&$salt&@CRLF)

$resKey = _CryptoNG_PBKDF2($pass, $salt, 100,$iDKeyBitLength,'SHA256')
If @error Then MsgBox(0,"","ERROR: " & _CryptoNG_LastErrorMessage(),0)

If StringLower(Hex($resKey)) <> '5fc52bc04cbe1ed40e549b52e5c636168242c1395df2dd696a327ad5e005198f' Then
   ConsoleWrite('saltedPassword: '&StringLower(Hex($resKey))&' WRONG! ---> 5fc52bc04cbe1ed40e549b52e5c636168242c1395df2dd696a327ad5e005198f'&@CRLF)
   ConsoleWrite('saltedPassword: '&StringLower(Hex($resKey))&' !Correct'&@CRLF)



And here are working examples in php and python.

You are getting the wrong result because you used the wrong data.  The examples in the links that you provided used binary salts.  You were not converting the salt to binary before passing it to the function. 

The example below, which is a modified version of the example supplied with the CryptoNG UDF lib, would be the equivalent conversion using CryptoNG:

#include <MyIncludes\CryptoNG\CryptoNG.au3>  ; <== Modify as needed


Func pbkdf2_example()

    Const $PASSWORD       = "[test]"
    Const $SALT           = _CryptoNG_CryptStringToBinary("fd4b1e6ad1b05db6ff288928fed3005ef4fdc9ade8be276220a8f41adcccda29", $CNG_CRYPT_STRING_HEX)
;~  Const $SALT           = Binary("0xfd4b1e6ad1b05db6ff288928fed3005ef4fdc9ade8be276220a8f41adcccda29") ;Alternate way
    Const $ITERATIONS     = 100
    Const $KEY_BIT_LENGTH = 256

    Local $xPasswordHash = Binary("")

    ;PBKDF2 Example
    If @error Then
        ConsoleWrite("ERROR: " & _CryptoNG_LastErrorMessage() & @CRLF)
        Exit 1

    ;Display results
    ConsoleWrite("CryptoNG Password-Based Key Derivation Function 2 (PBKDF2) Example" & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("PBKDF2_%s Password      = %s", $ALGORITHM, $PASSWORD) & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("PBKDF2_%s Salt          = %s", $ALGORITHM, $SALT) & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("PBKDF2_%s Iterations    = %s", $ALGORITHM, $ITERATIONS) & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("PBKDF2_%s Key Length    = %i bits / %i bytes", $ALGORITHM, $KEY_BIT_LENGTH, $KEY_BIT_LENGTH / 8) & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("PBKDF2_%s Password Hash = %s", $ALGORITHM, $xPasswordHash) & @CRLF)



CryptoNG Password-Based Key Derivation Function 2 (PBKDF2) Example
PBKDF2_SHA256 Password      = [test]
PBKDF2_SHA256 Salt          = 0xFD4B1E6AD1B05DB6FF288928FED3005EF4FDC9ADE8BE276220A8F41ADCCCDA29
PBKDF2_SHA256 Iterations    = 100
PBKDF2_SHA256 Key Length    = 256 bits / 32 bytes
PBKDF2_SHA256 Password Hash = 0x5FC52BC04CBE1ED40E549B52E5C636168242C1395DF2DD696A327AD5E005198F

i swear i tried every combination with binary and hex

For the record, you could have also used the CryptoNG helper function to convert the hex string to binary:

Const $SALT = _CryptoNG_CryptStringToBinary("fd4b1e6ad1b05db6ff288928fed3005ef4fdc9ade8be276220a8f41adcccda29", $CNG_CRYPT_STRING_HEX)


As opposed to the Binary() function, the _CryptoNG_CryptStringToBinary() function is more flexible for converting hex strings to binary because it can handle more input formats.  For example, all of the following strings would yield the same binary result, 0x0011223344:



"00 11 22 33 44"


"00 11" & @CRLF & _
"22"    & @CRLF & _


"ABEiM0Q="  (BASE64)

The_CryptoNG_CryptStringToBinary()  function can also convert BASE64 strings, in multiple formats, to binary.  So as you can see, it's quite flexible, especially for testing purposes.  Its companion function, _CryptoNG_CryptBinaryToString(), is very useful too.  See this post for examples.
