extremely simple wrapper around crypt(3)
pyphash is a Python extension module that wraps the C library function
crypt, which performs passphrase hashing, in the simplest possible
fashion. It exposes one function, named
crypt, which works just
like the C
crypt except that it is thread safe:
>>> pyphash.crypt("swordfish", "$5e$z4x3Zlhs") '$5$z4x3Zlhs$g7JP4M7HZw5L25Xwklbd2nQ2rfjzVGFB1SJutFnmvK4'
You have to create settings strings yourself.
This module is not intended to be used by programs that actually need
to hash passphrases—if it were, it would at least also provide access
crypt_gensalt. Rather, its purpose is to be a test case for the
packaging toolchain for C extension modules. Linux distributions are
changing how they provide the shared library that implements
and Python packaging must adapt. See manylinux bug
#305 for the gory details.
For thread safety, the module actually uses the reentrant variant of
crypt_r, and looks for it in
crypt.h rather than
unistd.h. It will fail to compile if this function or this header
is not available.
