The command they use to generate a salt is basically just a high quality random number generator (which is included in Crypto++ if your OS supports something like the crypto random number service or /dev/random.)
The command they use for hashing the key just shows that they use the hex encoding of the sha1 hash of the password, which is a medium-strength hash function (well supported in Crypto++.)
