NAME

    Digest::Bcrypt - Perl interface to the bcrypt digest algorithm

SYNOPSIS

        #!/usr/bin/env perl
        use strict;
        use warnings;
        use utf8;
        use Digest;   # via the Digest module (recommended)
    
        my $bcrypt = Digest->new('Bcrypt', cost => 12, salt => 'abcdefgh♥stuff');
    
        # $cost is an integer between 1 and 31
        $bcrypt->cost(12);
    
        # $salt must be exactly 16 octets long
        $bcrypt->salt('abcdefgh♥stuff');
    
        $bcrypt->add('some stuff', 'here and', 'here');
    
        my $digest = $bcrypt->digest;
        $digest = $bcrypt->hexdigest;
        $digest = $bcrypt->b64digest;
    
        # bcrypt's own non-standard base64 dictionary
        $digest = $bcrypt->bcrypt_b64digest;

NOTICE

    While maintenance for Digest::Bcrypt will continue, there's no reason
    to use Digest::Bcrypt when Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt already exists.
    We suggest that you use Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt instead.

DESCRIPTION

    Digest::Bcrypt provides a Digest-based interface to the
    Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt library.

    Please note that you must set a salt of exactly 16 octets in length,
    and you must provide a cost in the range '1'..'31'.

ATTRIBUTES

    Digest::Bcrypt implements the following attributes.

 cost

        $bcrypt = $bcrypt->cost(20); # allows for method chaining
        my $cost = $bcrypt->cost();

    An integer in the range '1'..'31', this is required.

    See Crypt::Eksblowfish::Bcrypt for a detailed description of cost in
    the context of the bcrypt algorithm.

    When called with no arguments, it will return the current cost.

 salt

        $bcrypt = $bcrypt->salt('abcdefgh♥stuff'); # allows for method chaining
        my $salt = $bcrypt->salt();

    Sets the value to be used as a salt. Bcrypt requires exactly 16 octets
    of salt.

    It is recommenced that you use a module like Data::Entropy::Algorithms
    to provide a truly randomized salt.

    When called with no arguments, it will return whatever is the current
    salt.

METHODS

    Digest::Bcrypt inherits all methods from Digest::base and
    implements/overrides the following methods as well.

 new

        my $bcrypt = Digest->new('Bcrypt', %params);
        my $bcrypt = Digest::Bcrypt->new(%params);
        my $bcrypt = Digest->new('Bcrypt', \%params);
        my $bcrypt = Digest::Bcrypt->new(\%params);

    Creates a new Digest::Bcrypt object. It is recommended that you use the
    Digest module in the first example rather than using Digest::Bcrypt
    directly.

    Possible parameters are:

    cost

      An integer value between 1 and 31.

    salt

      A string of exactly 16 octets in length.

 add

        $bcrypt->add("a"); $bcrypt->add("b"); $bcrypt->add("c");
        $bcrypt->add("a")->add("b")->add("c");
        $bcrypt->add("a", "b", "c");
        $bcrypt->add("abc");

    Adds data to the message we are calculating the digest for. All the
    above examples have the same effect.

 b64digest

        my $digest = $bcrypt->b64digest;

    Same as "digest", but will return the digest base64 encoded.

    The length of the returned string will be 31 and will only contain
    characters from the ranges '0'..'9', 'A'..'Z', 'a'..'z', '+', and '/'

    The base64 encoded string returned is not padded to be a multiple of 4
    bytes long.

 bcrypt_b64digest

        my $digest = $bcrypt->bcrypt_b64digest;

    Same as "digest", but will return the digest base64 encoded using the
    alphabet that is commonly used with bcrypt.

    The length of the returned string will be 31 and will only contain
    characters from the ranges '0'..'9', 'A'..'Z', 'a'..'z', '+', and '.'

    The base64 encoded string returned is not padded to be a multiple of 4
    bytes long.

    Note: This is bcrypt's own non-standard base64 alphabet, It is not
    compatible with the standard MIME base64 encoding.

 clone

        my $clone = $bcrypt->clone;

    Creates a clone of the Digest::Bcrypt object, and returns it.

 digest

        my $digest = $bcrypt->digest;

    Returns the binary digest for the message. The returned string will be
    23 bytes long.

 hexdigest

        my $digest = $bcrypt->hexdigest;

    Same as "digest", but will return the digest in hexadecimal form.

    The length of the returned string will be 46 and will only contain
    characters from the ranges '0'..'9' and 'a'..'f'.

 reset

        $bcrypt->reset;

    Resets the object to the same internal state it was in when it was
    constructed.
