The pwstore-purehaskell 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 is implemented in pure Haskell, with no C dependencies. For a faster implementation, the pwstore-fast package has the exact same API but is about 25 times faster due to its use of the cryptohash package, which is partly implemented in C. This pure Haskell version is visibly slower, but still quite usable.
