shacrypt

shacrypt is a simple enough wrapper over sha256-crypt and sha512-crypt functions originally created by Ulrich Drepper. See http://www.akkadia.org/drepper/SHA-crypt.txt

npm install shacrypt
  • Prerequisite

    var shacrypt = require('shacrypt');
  • Generate password hash:

    var hash = shacrypt.sha256crypt('super password');

// hash = $5$rounds=5000$3a1afb28e54a0391$0d6RupbpABtxCaH8WWOemYwEcToDVZXX/tHpIy6O1U3 ```

  • Validate password:

    console.log(hash == shacrypt.sha256crypt('super password', hash);
    // true 
  • Specify number of rounds (default is 5000):

    var hash = shacrypt.sha256crypt('super password', 10000);
    // hash = $5$rounds=10000$b2c0a3ef466b2ec7$poVvVeQAQSE.yec0LBFddzQ9kZ4UxzA5VtsZQShAyt8 
  • Provide your own SALT:

    var hash = shacrypt.sha256crypt('super password', 'my-salt');
    // or with iterations=10000 
    var hash = shacrypt.sha256crypt('super password', 'my-salt', 10000);
