Module Version Build Status Coverage Status

Lua C binding for the Argon2 password hashing function. Compatible with Lua 5.x and LuaJIT.

For LuaJIT or ngx_lua/OpenResty usage, consider the FFI implementation if this binding: lua-argon2-ffi.

Table of Contents

Requirements

The Argon2 shared library must be compiled and available in your system.

Compatibility:

  • Version 1.x of this module is compatible with Argon2 20151206.
  • Version 2.x of this module is compatible with Argon2 20160406 to 20161029.
  • Version 3.x of this module is compatible with Argon2 20161029 and above.

See the CI builds for the status of the currently supported versions.

Installation

This binding can be installed via Luarocks:

$ luarocks install argon2 ARGON2_INCDIR="..." ARGON2_LIBDIR="..."

ARGON2_INCDIR must contain the argon2.h header file, and ARGON2_LIBDIR must contain the compiled shared library for your platform.

Or by using the Makefile (use the provided variables to point it to your Lua and Argon2 installations):

$ make

Using the Makefile will compile argon2.so which must be placed somewhere in your LUA_CPATH.

Example

Hash a password to an encoded string:

local argon2 = require "argon2"
--- Prototype
-- local encoded, err = argon2.hash_encoded(pwd, salt, opts)

--- Argon2i
local encoded = assert(argon2.hash_encoded("password", "somesalt"))
-- encoded is "$argon2i$v=19$m=4096,t=3,p=1$c29tZXNhbHQ$iWh06vD8Fy27wf9npn6FXWiCX4K6pW6Ue1Bnzz07Z8A"

--- Argon2d
local encoded = assert(argon2.hash_encoded("password", "somesalt", {
  variant = argon2.variants.argon2_d
}))
-- encoded is "$argon2d$v=19$m=4096,t=3,p=1$c29tZXNhbHQ$2+JCoQtY/2x5F0VB9pEVP3xBNguWP1T25Ui0PtZuk8o"

--- Argon2id
local encoded = assert(argon2.hash_encoded("password", "somesalt", {
  variant = argon2.variants.argon2_id
}))
-- encoded is "$argon2id$v=19$m=4096,t=3,p=1$c29tZXNhbHQ$qLml5cbqFAO6YxVHhrSBHP0UWdxrIxkNcM8aMX3blzU"

-- Hashing options
local encoded = assert(argon2.hash_encoded("password", "somesalt", {
  t_cost = 4,
  m_cost = math.pow(2, 16), -- 65536 KiB
  parallelism = 2
}))
-- encoded is "$argon2i$v=19$m=65536,t=4,p=2$c29tZXNhbHQ$n6x5DKNWV8BOeKemQJRk7BU3hcaCVomtn9TCyEA0inM"

-- Changing the default options (those arguments are the current defaults)
argon2.t_cost(3)
argon2.m_cost(4096)
argon2.parallelism(1)
argon2.hash_len(32)
argon2.variant(argon2.variants.argon2_i)

Verify a password against an encoded string:

local argon2 = require "argon2"
--- Prototype
-- local ok, err = argon2.decrypt(hash, plain)

local encoded = assert(argon2.hash_encoded("password", "somesalt"))
-- encoded: argon2i encoded hash

local ok, err = argon2.verify(encoded, "password")
if err then
  error("could not verify: " .. err)
end

if not ok then
  error("The password does not match the supplied hash")
end
