This crate defines a set of traits which describe the functionality of password hashing algorithms.
no_std-friendly implementation of the
Password Hashing Competition (PHC) string format specification
(a well-defined subset of the Modular Crypt Format a.k.a. MCF) which
works in conjunction with the traits this crate defines.
See RustCrypto/password-hashes for algorithm implementations which use this crate for interoperability:
argon2- Argon2 memory hard key derivation function
pbkdf2- Password-Based Key Derivation Function v2
scrypt- scrypt key derivation function
This crate represents password hashes using the
PasswordHash type, which
represents a parsed “PHC string” with the following format:
