# Bcrypt

[![ Version](](

Bcrypt password hashing library 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.

## Changes in version 2

In version 2.0, bcrypt_elixir has been updated to implement the Comeonin
and Comeonin.PasswordHash behaviours.

It now has the following two additional convenience functions:

* `add_hash/2`
  * same as Comeonin.Bcrypt.add_hash in Comeonin version 4
  * hashes a password and returns a map with the password hash
* `check_pass/3`
  * same as Comeonin.Bcrypt.check_pass in Comeonin version 4
  * takes a user struct and password as input and verifies the password

## 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, "~> 2.0"}

If you are using Erlang 19 or below:

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
