Wrapper to the POSIX crypt library call and associated functionality.

Project description

Legacy crypt — Function to check Unix passwords

The legacycrypt module is a standalone version of https://docs.python.org/3/library/crypt.html

This module implements an interface to the crypt(3) routine, which is a one-way hash function based upon a modified DES algorithm; see the Unix man page for further details. Possible uses include storing hashed passwords so you can check passwords without storing the actual password, or attempting to crack Unix passwords with a dictionary.

Notice that the behavior of this module depends on the actual implementation of the crypt(3) routine in the running system. Therefore, any extensions available on the current implementation will also be available on this module.
