Installation and Usage

Install the package with

pip
_ and
Mercurial
_ or
git
_::
pip install -e hg+http://bitbucket.org/dwaiter/django-bcrypt#egg=django-bcrypt

or ...

pip install -e git://github.com/dwaiter/django-bcrypt.git#egg=django-bcrypt

.. _pip: http://pip.openplans.org/ .. _Mercurial: http://hg-scm.org/ .. _git: http://git-scm.com/

Add

django_bcrypt
to your
INSTALLED_APPS
.

That's it.

Any new passwords set will be hashed with bcrypt. Old passwords will still work fine.

Configuration

You can configure how django-bcrypt behaves with a few settings in your

settings.py
file.

BCRYPT_ENABLED
``````````````````

Enables bcrypt hashing when

User.set_password()
is called.

Default:

True

BCRYPT_ENABLED_UNDER_TEST
`````````````````````````````

Enables bcrypt hashing when running inside Django TestCases.

Default:

False
(to speed up user creation)

BCRYPT_ROUNDS
`````````````````

Number of rounds to use for bcrypt hashing. Increase this as computers get faster.

You can change the number of rounds without breaking already-hashed passwords. New passwords will use the new number of rounds, and old ones will use the old number.

Default:

12

BCRYPT_MIGRATE
``````````````````

Enables bcrypt password migration on a

check_password()
call.

The hash is also migrated when

BCRYPT_ROUNDS
changes.

Default:

False

Acknowledgements

This is pretty much a packaged-up version of

this blog post
_ for easier use.

It also depends on the

py-bcrypt
_ library.
