HaveIBeenPwned Password C# API

A C#.NET Standard 2.0 wrapper for the haveibeenpwned password REST API

NuGet package

The NuGet package can be found on NuGet.org or by searching Wndrr.HaveIBeenPwned.Password in the NuGet explorer.

Usage

Config

The library can be configured throught it constructor. below are the configurable properties:

  • The API endpoint
  • The number of times a password must be leaked to be considered "pwned"
// Default instanciation. The official API endpoint will be used and the numberOfLeaksForPwn will be 0
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned();
// Overrides only the API endpoint
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned("https://custom.end.point");
// Overrides only the numberOfLeaksForPwn.
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned(10);
// Overrides both the API endpoint and the numberOfLeaksForPwn property
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned("https://custom.end.point", 10);

The NumberOfLeaksForPwn property

This property must have a value between 1 and int.MaxValue. It will be used in the IsPasswordPwned and GetPwned methods to determine whether a password is "pwned". Default is 1.

The IsPasswordPwned method

Calls the HaveIBeenPwned REST API and returns a bool indicating if the password has been leaked at least once. Internally, the IsPasswordPwned method uses a call to GetNumberOfTimesPasswordPwned.

// Instanciate the HaveIBeenPwned class
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned();
// Call IsPasswordPwned with a plain text string password to know if the password was leaked at least once
bool isPasswordPwned = pwned.IsPasswordPwned("aVeryBadPassword");

The GetNumberOfTimesPasswordPwned method

Calls the HaveIBeenPwned REST API and returns an int indicating how many times the password has been leaked.

// Instanciate the HaveIBeenPwned class
var pwned = new HaveIBeenPwned.Password.HaveIBeenPwned();
// Call GetNumberOfTimesPasswordPwned with a plain text string password to know the number of times it was leaked
int numberOfTimesPwned = pwned.GetNumberOfTimesPasswordPwned("aVeryBadPassword");

The GetPwned method

Calls the HaveIBeenPwned web API for each provided password and returns the list of passwords that were leaked It can be called by passing either an IEnumerable<string>, a string[] or a set of string.

var rawPass = new[]{"poopPassword_1", "iAtePizzaAtLunchI'mSoFull(this_is_a_decent_length_password)"};
var pwnedArray = GetPwned(rawPass); //string[]
var pwnedIEnumerable = GetPwned(rawPass.ToList()); // IEnumerable<string>
var pwnedParams = GetPwned("poopPassword_1", "passPoopWord_2", "3_3", "123456" /*, [...] */); // params string
You can’t perform that action at this time.
