- Enclosing class:
This class defines the interface for verifying a passwords against password hashes, or computing a new password hash for a password.
Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescriptionComputes the password hash for a clear text password.
booleanReturns whether a password hash needs to be updated (recomputed).
booleanVerifies a password against a hash.
(PasswordHash hash)Returns whether a password hash needs to be updated (recomputed).
hashmay need to be updated if it has been computed with a cryptographic method that is being disfavoured.
hashPasswordComputes the password hash for a clear text password.
This must return a hash that can later be used to verify the user's password, but which avoids compromising the user's password in case of loss.
verifyVerifies a password against a hash.
This returns whether the given password matches with the user's credentials stored in the hash.
