Package bcrypt implements Provos and Mazières's bcrypt adaptive hashing algorithm. See http://www.usenix.org/event/usenix99/provos/provos.pdf
- func CompareHashAndPassword(hashedPassword, password byte) error
- func Cost(hashedPassword byte) (int, error)
- func GenerateFromPassword(password byte, cost int) (byte, error)
- type HashVersionTooNewError
- type InvalidCostError
- type InvalidHashPrefixError
The error returned from CompareHashAndPassword when a hash is too short to be a bcrypt hash.
The error returned from CompareHashAndPassword when a password and hash do not match.
ErrPasswordTooLong is returned when the password passed to GenerateFromPassword is too long (i.e. > 72 bytes).
func CompareHashAndPassword ¶
CompareHashAndPassword compares a bcrypt hashed password with its possible plaintext equivalent. Returns nil on success, or an error on failure.
Cost returns the hashing cost used to create the given hashed password. When, in the future, the hashing cost of a password system needs to be increased in order to adjust for greater computational power, this function allows one to establish which passwords need to be updated.
func GenerateFromPassword ¶
GenerateFromPassword returns the bcrypt hash of the password at the given cost. If the cost given is less than MinCost, the cost will be set to DefaultCost, instead. Use CompareHashAndPassword, as defined in this package, to compare the returned hashed password with its cleartext version. GenerateFromPassword does not accept passwords longer than 72 bytes, which is the longest password bcrypt will operate on.
type HashVersionTooNewError ¶
type HashVersionTooNewError byte
The error returned from CompareHashAndPassword when a hash was created with a bcrypt algorithm newer than this implementation.
type InvalidCostError ¶
type InvalidCostError int
