pwd

Hash and compare passwords with the crypto's pbkdf2 and return hashed password in base64.

Installation

$ npm install pwd-base64

Example

On signup generate a salt / password hash, and save it somewhere:

var pass = require('pwd');
pass.hash('my password', function(err, salt, hash){
  user.salt = salt;
  user.hash = hash;
})

To authenticate load and compare:

var pass = require('pwd');
pass.hash('submitted password', user.salt, function(err, hash){
  if (user.hash == hash) {
    // yay
  }
})

Too fast? slow it down:

pass.iterations(20000);
