Passlib is a password hashing library for Python 2 & 3, which provides cross-platform implementations of over 30 password hashing algorithms, as well as a framework for managing existing password hashes. It's designed to be useful for a wide range of tasks, from verifying a hash found in /etc/shadow, to providing full-strength password hashing for multi-user application.

A quick example of using passlib to integrate into a new application:
>>> # import the example context object under an app-specific name (so it can easily be replaced later) >>> from passlib.apps import custom_app_context as pwd_context >>> # encrypting a password... >>> hash = pwd_context.hash("somepass") >>> hash '$6$rounds=36122$kzMjVFTjgSVuPoS.$zx2RoZ2TYRHoKn71Y60MFmyqNPxbNnTZdwYD8y2atgoRIp923WJSbcbQc6Af3osdW96MRfwb5Hk7FymOM6D7J1' >>> # verifying a password... >>> ok = pwd_context.verify("somepass", hash) True >>> ok = pwd_context.verify("letmein", hash) False

Passlib's source repository uses Mercurial. When building Passlib from an hg clone, note that there are two main branches: default and stable.
- default is the bleeding edge of the next major release. It may sometimes be of alpha quality.
- stable is the latest released version plus any pending bugfixes, and should be safe to use in production.
