# Bcrypt

Bcrypt password hashing algorithm for Elixir.

Bcrypt is a well-tested password-based key derivation function that
can be configured to remain slow and resistant to brute-force attacks
even as computational power increases.

This version is based on the OpenBSD version of Bcrypt and supports
the `$2b$` and `$2a$` prefixes. For advice on how to use hashes with
the `$2y$` prefix, see [this issue](

This library can be used on its own, or it can be used together
with [Comeonin](,
which provides a higher-level api.

## Async tests issue

Some developers have reported problems when running tests using `async: true`
with version 1.0 of bcrypt_elixir. See this [issue](
for more details.

## Installation

1. Add bcrypt_elixir to the `deps` section of your mix.exs file:

If you are using Erlang 20:

def deps do
    {:bcrypt_elixir, "~> 1.0"}

If you are NOT using Erlang 20:

def deps do
    {:bcrypt_elixir, "~> 0.12"}

2. Make sure you have a C compiler installed.
See the [Comeonin wiki]( for details.

3. Optional: during tests (and tests only), you may want to reduce the number of rounds
so it does not slow down your test suite. If you have a config/test.exs, you should

config :bcrypt_elixir, :log_rounds, 4

## Use

In most cases, you will just need to use the following three functions:

* hash_pwd_salt - hash a password with a randomly-generated salt
* verify_pass - check the password by comparing it with a stored hash
* no_user_verify - perform a dummy check to make user enumeration more difficult

See the documentation for the Bcrypt module for more information.

For a lower-level api, see the documentation for Bcrypt.Base.
