zxcvbn-ruby

This is a Ruby port of Dropbox's zxcvbn.js JavaScript library.

Development status CI Status

zxcvbn-ruby is considered stable and is used in projects around Envato.

After checking out the repository, run bundle install to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install.

To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.

Getting started Gem version Gem downloads

Add the following to your project's Gemfile:

gem 'zxcvbn-ruby', require: 'zxcvbn'

Example usage:

$ irb
>> require 'zxcvbn'
=> true
>> pp Zxcvbn.test('@lfred2004', ['alfred'])

  #<Zxcvbn::Feedback:0x00007f7f59060150
   @suggestions=
    ["Add another word or two. Uncommon words are better.",
     "Predictable substitutions like '@' instead of 'a' don't help very much"],

Testing Multiple Passwords

The dictionaries used for password strength testing are loaded each request to Zxcvbn.test. If you you'd prefer to persist the dictionaries in memory (approx 20MB RSS) to perform lots of password tests in succession then you can use the Zxcvbn::Tester API:

$ irb
>> require 'zxcvbn'
=> true
>> tester = Zxcvbn::Tester.new
=> #<Zxcvbn::Tester:0x3fe99d869aa4>
>> pp tester.test('@lfred2004', ['alfred'])
#<Zxcvbn::Score:0x00007f7f586fcf50
 @calc_time=0.00631899997824803,
 @crack_time=0.012,
 @crack_time_display="instant",
 @entropy=7.895,
 @feedback=
  #<Zxcvbn::Feedback:0x00007f7f586fcac8
   @suggestions=
    ["Add another word or two. Uncommon words are better.",
     "Predictable substitutions like '@' instead of 'a' don't help very much"],
   @warning=nil>,
 @match_sequence=
  [#<Zxcvbn::Match matched_word="alfred", token="@lfred", i=0, j=5, rank=1, pattern="dictionary", dictionary_name="user_inputs", l33t=true, sub={"@"=>"a"}, sub_display="@ -> a", base_entropy=0.0, uppercase_entropy=0.0, l33t_entropy=1, entropy=1.0>,
   #<Zxcvbn::Match i=6, j=9, token="2004", pattern="year", entropy=6.894817763307944>],
 @password="@lfred2004",
 @score=0>
=> #<Zxcvbn::Score:0x00007f7f586fcf50>
>> pp tester.test('@lfred2004', ['alfred'])
#<Zxcvbn::Score:0x00007f7f56d57438
 @calc_time=0.001986999996006489,
 @crack_time=0.012,
 @crack_time_display="instant",
 @entropy=7.895,
 @feedback=
  #<Zxcvbn::Feedback:0x00007f7f56d56bf0
   @suggestions=
    ["Add another word or two. Uncommon words are better.",
     "Predictable substitutions like '@' instead of 'a' don't help very much"],
   @warning=nil>,
 @match_sequence=
  [#<Zxcvbn::Match matched_word="alfred", token="@lfred", i=0, j=5, rank=1, pattern="dictionary", dictionary_name="user_inputs", l33t=true, sub={"@"=>"a"}, sub_display="@ -> a", base_entropy=0.0, uppercase_entropy=0.0, l33t_entropy=1, entropy=1.0>,
   #<Zxcvbn::Match i=6, j=9, token="2004", pattern="year", entropy=6.894817763307944>],
 @password="@lfred2004",
 @score=0>
=> #<Zxcvbn::Score:0x00007f7f56d57438>

Note: Storing the entropy of an encrypted or hashed value provides information that can make cracking the value orders of magnitude easier for an attacker. For this reason we advise you not to store the results of Zxcvbn::Tester#test. Further reading: A Tale of Security Gone Wrong.
