  • Method Details

    • needsUpdate

      boolean needsUpdate(PasswordHash hash)
      Returns whether a password hash needs to be updated (recomputed).

      A hash may need to be updated if it has been computed with a cryptographic method that is being disfavoured.

    • hashPassword

      PasswordHash hashPassword(CharSequence password)
      Computes 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.

    • verify

      boolean verify(CharSequence password, PasswordHash hash)
      Verifies a password against a hash.

      This returns whether the given password matches with the user's credentials stored in the hash.
