    password-hash-and-salt

    This module provides straight-forward password hashing for node.js applications using default settings considered to be safe.

    Usage

    First, install the module:

    $ npm install password-hash-and-salt --save

    Afterwards, usage is as simple as shown in the following example:

    var password = require('password-hash-and-salt');
     
    var myuser = [];
     
    // Creating hash and salt
    password('mysecret').hash(function(error, hash) {
        if(error)
            throw new Error('Something went wrong!');
     
        // Store hash (incl. algorithm, iterations, and salt)
        myuser.hash = hash;
     
        // Verifying a hash
        password('hack').verifyAgainst(myuser.hash, function(error, verified) {
            if(error)
                throw new Error('Something went wrong!');
            if(!verified) {
                console.log("Don't try! We got you!");
            } else {
                console.log("The secret is...");
            }
        });
    })
     

    Crypto

    password-hash-and-salt uses node.js' internal crypto module. Hashes are generated with pbkdf2 using 10,000 iterations.

    Created hash

    The created hash is of 270 characters length and is of the following format: pbkdf2$10000$hash$salt

    This allows for future upgrades of the algorithm and/or increased number of iterations in future version. It also simplifies storage as no dedicated database field for the salt is required.
