Koha::AuthUtils - utility routines for authentication
use Koha::AuthUtils qw/hash_password/; my $hash = hash_password($password);
This module provides utility functions related to managing user passwords.
my $hash = Koha::AuthUtils::hash_password($password, $settings);
my $salt = Koha::Auth::generate_salt($strength, $length);
For general password salting a
weak is recommend, For generating a server-salt a
strong is recommended
'strong' uses /dev/random which may block until sufficient entropy is achieved. 'weak' uses /dev/urandom and is non-blocking.
$length is a positive integer which specifies the desired length of the returned string
my ( $is_valid, $error ) = is_password_valid( $password, $category );
return $is_valid == 1 if the password match category's minimum password length and strength if provided, or general minPasswordLength and RequireStrongPassword conditions otherwise return $is_valid == 0 and $error will contain the error ('too_short' or 'too_weak')
my password = generate_password($category);
Generate a password according to category's minimum password length and strength if provided, or to the minPasswordLength and RequireStrongPassword system preferences.
