In Kenshi's notes in the subaddresses PR it says that when generating subaddresses m = Hs(a || i) and i is just the index of the subaddress. so if a is the secret view key "c8904212e0fc51ceecc7113937861c27948c8fef6f555d6b67f53f3a373dbf37" for the subaddress at index 1 m would equal hash_to_scalar("c8904212e0fc51ceecc7113937861c27948c8fef6f555d6b67f53f3a373dbf371") which is just the secret view key with a '1' tacked on at the end? I had asked on #monero-dev and moneromooo quickly responded, but I still don't quite understand.
moneromooo: Plus a common salt IIRC. moneromooo: It's a constant that's concatenated to the key and index too. Just to ensure we can't (usual disclaimer applies) get collisions.
Can anybody shed some light on what this salt actually is/how it is generated?
