Crypt::Passwd::XS(3)  User Contributed Perl Documentation Crypt::Passwd::XS(3)

NAME
       Crypt::Passwd::XS - Full	XS implementation of common crypt() algorithms

SYNOPSIS
	 use Crypt::Passwd::XS;

	 my $plaintext = 'secret';
	 my $salt      = '$1$1234';
	 my $crypted   = Crypt::Passwd::XS::crypt( $plaintext, $salt );

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides several common crypt() schemes as full XS
       implementations.	 It allows you to validate crypted passwords that were
       hashed using a scheme that the system's native crypt() implementation
       does not	support.

   Description of functions
       The crypt() function handles all	supported crypt	methods	using the
       standard	salt prefix system for determinging the	crypt type.

       The unix_md5_crypt() function performs a	MD5 crypt regardless of	the
       salt prefix.

       The apache_md5_crypt() function performs	a APR1 crypt regardless	of the
       salt prefix.

       The unix_des_crypt() funtion performs a traditional DES crypt
       regardless of the salt prefix.

       The unix_sha256_crypt() function	performs a SHA256 crypt	regardless of
       the salt	prefix.

       The unix_sha512_crypt() function	performs a SHA512 crypt	regardless of
       the salt	prefix.

TODO
       The blowfish and	Sun crypt() schemes are	currently unsupported.
