Node-Cache token store for Passwordless
This module provides token storage for Passwordless, a node.js module for express that allows website authentication without password using verification through email or other means. Visit the project's website https://passwordless.net for more details.
Tokens are stored in memory and are hashed and salted using bcryptjs. As such, tokens will not survive a restart of your application. This implementation is mainly meant for example, proof-of-concepts or perhaps unit testing.
First, install the module:
$ npm install passwordless-nodecache --save
Afterwards, follow the guide for Passwordless. A typical implementation may look like this:
var passwordless = ;var NodeCacheStore = ;passwordless;passwordless;app;app;
Hash and salt
As the tokens are equivalent to passwords (even though they do have the security advantage of only being valid for a limited time) they have to be protected in the same way. passwordless-nodecache uses bcryptjs with automatically created random salts. To generate the salt 10 rounds are used.
