JBCrypt

jBCrypt is an implementation the OpenBSD Blowfish password hashing algorithm, as described in "A Future-Adaptable Password Scheme" by Niels Provos and David Mazieres.

This system hashes passwords using a version of Bruce Schneier's Blowfish block cipher with modifications designed to raise the cost of off-line password cracking. The computation cost of the algorithm is parameterised, so it can be increased as computers get faster.

JUnit regression tests are available in in TestBCrypt.java

jBCrypt is licensed under a ISC/BSD licence. See the LICENSE file for details.

Please report bugs to Damien Miller [email protected]. Please check the TODO file first, in case your problem is something I already know about (please send patches!)

A simple example that demonstrates most of the features:

// Hash a password for the first time
String hashed = BCrypt.hashpw(password, BCrypt.gensalt());

// gensalt's log_rounds parameter determines the complexity // the work factor is 2**log_rounds, and the default is 10 String hashed = BCrypt.hashpw(password, BCrypt.gensalt(12));

// Check that an unencrypted password matches one that has // previously been hashed if (BCrypt.checkpw(candidate, hashed)) System.out.println("It matches"); else System.out.println("It does not match");

There is also a C#/.NET port by Derek Slager

Package notes

This is an alternative distribution of jBCrypt. It has been packaged to ease use in existing applications — especially those using Apache Maven.

The code is unchanged from the original jBCrypt 0.4, however:

  • The classes have been moved to a java package to avoid pollution of the global namespace. org.mindrot was chosen to reflect their original origin.
  • The JBCrypt class javadoc has been changed to version 0.4. The official package incorrectly contains 0.2 as the stated version.
  • A pom.xml file has been added for use with Maven

Maven setup

Install it to your local Maven repository:

mvn clean javadoc:jar source:jar install

Use it in your project by adding the following to your project pom.xml:

    
        org.mindrot
        jbcrypt
        0.3
