pwhash is a password hashing library, relying on well known and trusted implementations of cryptographic hashing functions, making password hashing as simple as:
from pwhash import PasswordHasher pwhasher = PasswordHasher.from_config_file("pwhashc.json") hash = pwhash.create(u"password") verified, new_hash = pwhasher.verify_and_upgrade(u"password", hash) if verified: authenticate() if new_hash is not None: save_new_safer_hash(new_hash)
There is no reason to make password hashing more difficult or upgrading your hash function less seamless.
