The pwstore-fast package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

To store passwords securely, they should be salted, then hashed with a slow hash function. This library uses PBKDF1-SHA256, and handles all the details. It uses the cryptohash package for speed; if you need a pure Haskell library, pwstore-purehaskell has the exact same API, but uses only pure Haskell. It is about 25 times slower than this package, but still quite usable.
