Secure Password library using only Python standard lib
A small Python library that aids in securely storing and authenticating passwords.
Based on best practice suggestions from: https://crackstation.net/hashing-security.htm?=rd
>>> hashed = hash_password( ... password='secure password', ... key='string from keyfile', ... iterations=500 ... ) >>> verify_password( ... stored_password=hashed, ... provided_password='secure password', ... key='string from keyfile', ... iterations=500 ... ) True
Note that iterations is a multiplied by 1,000. 500 is probably a reasonable default.
If key is used it should be a string read from a file or outside source that is not stored in the database or hardcoded into the program.
Keyed Hashes are not required. By default an empty string is used.
