Python3 port of py-bcrypt(http://www.mindrot.org/projects/py-bcrypt/)

branch: master
README
py3k-bcrypt is an implementation the OpenBSD Blowfish password hashing
algorithm, as described in "A Future-Adaptable Password Scheme" by Niels
Provos and David Mazieres: http://www.openbsd.org/papers/bcrypt-paper.ps

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
parametised, so it can be increased as computers get faster.

py3k-bcrypt requires python3.

To install, use the standard Python distutils incantation:

	python3 setup.py build
	python3 setup.py install

Regression tests are in the test/test.py file. This is deliberately in
a subdirectory so it does not mistakenly pick up the top-level bcrypt/
directory.

py-bcrypt is licensed under a ISC/BSD licence. The underlying Blowfish
and password hashing code is taken from OpenBSD's libc. See the LICENSE
file for details.

Please report py3k related bugs to Doğan Aydın <dogan@doganaydin.org> or use github issues. 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:

	import bcrypt

	# Hash a password for the first time
	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 12
	hashed = bcrypt.hashpw(password, bcrypt.gensalt(10))

	# Check that an unencrypted password matches one that has
	# previously been hashed
	if bcrypt.hashpw(plaintext, hashed) == hashed:
		print "It matches"
	else:
		print "It does not match"
