Verdaccio Module For User Auth Via Htpasswd
verdaccio-htpasswd is a default authentication plugin for the Verdaccio.
Plugin only valid for verdaccio v5.x
As simple as running:
$ npm install -g verdaccio-htpasswd
auth: htpasswd: file: ./htpasswd # Maximum amount of users allowed to register, defaults to "+infinity". # You can set this to -1 to disable registration. #max_users: 1000 # Hash algorithm, possible options are: "bcrypt", "md5", "sha1", "crypt". # Default algorithm is crypt. #algorithm: bcrypt # Rounds number for "bcrypt", will be ignored for other algorithms. # Setting this value higher will result in password verification taking longer. #rounds: 10 # Log a warning if the password takes more then this duration in milliseconds to verify. #slow_verify_ms: 200
It is important to note that when using the default
bcrypt algorithm and setting
rounds configuration value to a higher number then the default of
verification of a user password can cause significantly increased CPU usage and
additional latency in processing requests.
If your Verdaccio instance handles a large number of authenticated requests using
username and password for authentication, the
rounds configuration value may need
to be decreased to prevent excessive CPU usage and request latency.
Also note that setting the
rounds configuration value to a value that is too small
increases the risk of successful brute force attack. Auth0 has a
that provides an overview of how
bcrypt hashing works and some best practices.
To log in using NPM, run:
npm adduser --registry https://your.registry.local
Generate htpasswd username/password combination
If you wish to handle access control using htpasswd file, you can generate username/password combination form here and add it to htpasswd file.
How does it work?
The htpasswd file contains rows corresponding to a pair of username and password
separated with a colon character. The password is encrypted using the UNIX system's
crypt method and may use MD5 or SHA1.
