lua-resty-scrypt

lua-resty-scrypt is a scrypt (password) hashing library for OpenResty.

Hello World with lua-resty-scrypt

local scrypt = require "resty.scrypt"
local hash   = scrypt.crypt "My Secret"         -- returns a hash that can be stored in db
local valid  = scrypt.check("My Secret", hash)  -- valid holds true
local valid  = scrypt.check("My Guess",  hash)  -- valid holds false

local n,r,p  = scrypt.calibrate()               -- returns n,r,p calibration values

Installation

Just place scrypt.lua somewhere in your package.path, preferably under resty directory. If you are using OpenResty, the default location would be /usr/local/openresty/lualib/resty.

Compiling and Installing Scrypt C-library

These are just rudimentary notes. Better installation instructions will follow:

  1. First download Scrypt from here: https://github.com/bungle/lua-scrypt
  2. Run make
  3. Place scrypt.so|scrypt.dylib|scrypt.dll somewhere in the default search path for dynamic libraries of your operating system (or modify scrypt.lua and point ffi_load("scrypt") with full path to scrypt.so|scrypt.dylib|scrypt.dll, e.g. local scrypt = ffi_load("/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/scrypt.so")).

Using LuaRocks or MoonRocks

If you are using LuaRocks >= 2.2:

$ luarocks install lua-resty-scrypt

If you are using LuaRocks < 2.2:

$ luarocks install --server=http://rocks.moonscript.org moonrocks
$ moonrocks install lua-resty-scrypt

MoonRocks repository for lua-resty-scrypt is located here: https://rocks.moonscript.org/modules/bungle/lua-resty-scrypt.

Lua API

string scrypt.crypt(opts)

Uses scrypt algorithm to generate hash from the input. Input parameter opts can either be string (a secret) or a table. If it is a table you may pass in some configuration parameters as well. Available table options (defaults are as follows):

local opts = {
    secret   = "",
    keysize  = 32,
    n        = 32768,
    r        = 8,
    p        = 1,
    salt     = "random (saltsize) bytes generated with OpenSSL",
    saltsize = 8
}

If you pass opts anything other than a table, it will be tostringified and used as a secret. keysize can be between 16 and 512, saltsize can be between 8 and 32.

This function returns string that looks like this:

n$r$p$salt$hash

All parts present a hex dump of their values.

Example
local h1 = scrypt.crypt "My Secret"
local h2 = scrypt.crypt{
    secret  = "My Secret",
    keysize = 512 
}

boolean scrypt.check(secret, hash)

With this function you can check if the secret really matches with the hash that was generated with scrypt.crypt from the same secret. The hash contains also the configuration parameters like n, r, p and salt.

Example
local b1 = scrypt.check("My Secret", scrypt.crypt "My Secret") -- returns true
local b2 = scrypt.check("My Secret", scrypt.crypt "No Secret") -- returns false

number, number, number scrypt.calibrate(maxmem, maxmemfrac, maxtime)

This function can be used to count n, r, and p configuration values from maxmem, maxmemfrac and maxtime parameters. These are the defaults for those:

maxmem     = 1048576
maxmemfrac = 0.5
maxtime    = 0.2

The results may change depending on your computer's processing power.

Example
local n,r,p = scrypt.calibrate()
local hash  = scrypt.crypt{
    secret  = "My Secret",
    n = n,
    r = r,
    p = p
}

number scrypt.memoryuse(n, r, p)

Counts the memory use of scrypt-algorigth with the provided n, r, and p arguments.

Example
local memoryuse = scrypt.memoryuse(scrypt.calibrate())

Default parameters for n, r, and p are:

n = 32768
r = 8
p = 1
