Python PKCS#5 v2.0 PBKDF2 Module

branch: master
README.txt
Python PKCS#5 v2.0 PBKDF2 Module
--------------------------------

This module implements the password-based key derivation function, PBKDF2,
specified in `RSA PKCS#5 v2.0 <http://www.rsa.com/rsalabs/node.asp?id=2127>`_.

Example PBKDF2 usage
====================

::

 from pbkdf2 import PBKDF2
 from Crypto.Cipher import AES
 import os

 salt = os.urandom(8)    # 64-bit salt
 key = PBKDF2("This passphrase is a secret.", salt).read(32) # 256-bit key
 iv = os.urandom(16)     # 128-bit IV
 cipher = AES.new(key, AES.MODE_CBC, iv)
 # ...

Example crypt() usage
=====================

::

 from pbkdf2 import crypt
 pwhash = crypt("secret")
 alleged_pw = raw_input("Enter password: ")
 if pwhash == crypt(alleged_pw, pwhash):
     print "Password good"
 else:
     print "Invalid password"

Example crypt() output
======================

::

 >>> from pbkdf2 import crypt
 >>> crypt("secret")
 '$p5k2$$hi46RA73$aGBpfPOgOrgZLaHGweSQzJ5FLz4BsQVs'
 >>> crypt("secret", "XXXXXXXX")
 '$p5k2$$XXXXXXXX$L9mVVdq7upotdvtGvXTDTez3FIu3z0uG'
 >>> crypt("secret", "XXXXXXXX", 400)  # 400 iterations (the default for crypt)
 '$p5k2$$XXXXXXXX$L9mVVdq7upotdvtGvXTDTez3FIu3z0uG'
 >>> crypt("spam", iterations=400)
 '$p5k2$$FRsH3HJB$SgRWDNmB2LukCy0OTal6LYLHZVgtOi7s'
 >>> crypt("spam", iterations=1000)    # 1000 iterations
 '$p5k2$3e8$H0NX9mT/$wk/sE8vv6OMKuMaqazCJYDSUhWY9YB2J'
