    @sl-nx/couch-pwd

    An up-to-date version of couch-pwd that is actually published.

    Hash and compare passwords with the crypto's pbkdf2. Heavily inspired by node-pwd.

    Uses the following values as defaults:

    • iterations = 10
    • keylen = 20
    • size = 16
    • encoding = 'hex'
    • digest = 'SHA1'

    The resulting salt and password Strings are the same you'd get when you save a user to CouchDB and let CouchDB do all the hashing for you.

    Module has two goals

    • verify user passwords without making requests to /_session API
    • use the same hashing algorithm for other databases

    Installation

    npm install couch-pwd

    Example

    On signup generate a salt / password hash, and save it somewhere:

    var pwdModule = require('couch-pwd');
    var pwd = new pwdModule();
    pwd.hash('my password', function (err, salt, hash) {
      user.salt = salt;
      user.hash = hash;
    });

    To authenticate load and compare:

    var pwdModule = require('couch-pwd');
    var pwd = new pwdModule();
    pwd.hash('submitted password', user.salt, function (err, hash) {
      if (user.hash == hash) {
        // yay
      }
    });
