A Rust library for accessing a collection of mathematical and cryptographic constants
Welcome to PSPH 👋
PassPhrase (PSPH) is a Rust library that empowers developers to elevate
the security of their applications with ease.
PSPH generates secure
and strong passphrases using a unique combination of letters, numbers,
cases, and symbols to form an unpredictable string of characters that
doesn't resemble words or names with a high level of entropy.
PSPH uses the
cmn crate for constants; the
hsh crate for password
hashing, and the
vrd crate for random number generation.
Password struct is the cornerstone of
PSPH, storing the
generated passphrase, as well as the optional special characters and
separators to use. This struct also provides a range of functions for
evaluating the security of the password, such as entropy calculation,
hash generation, password validation, and much more.
- Passphrase Generation: Generates random, secure passphrases consisting of multiple words separated by a specified separator.
- Entropy Calculation: Calculates the entropy of a password based on its length, the number of unique characters used, and the number of bits of the hash generated from the password. The entropy value provides insight into the security of the password, with higher entropy values indicating stronger security.
- Hash Generation: Returns the hash of the generated password,
- enabling secure storage of the passphrase.
- Hash Length Calculation: Evaluates the length of the hash generated from the password.
- Passphrase Validation: Checks if the generated passphrase is empty, making sure that a secure password is always generated.
- Passphrase Length Calculation: Evaluates the length of the generated passphrase, giving developers full control over password length.
It takes just a few minutes to get up and running with
psph requires Rust 1.67.0 or later.
psph in your project, add the following to your
[dependencies] psph = "0.0.1"
Add the following to your
extern crate psph; use psph::*;
then you can use the functions in your application code.
PSPH comes with a set of examples that you can use to get started. The
examples are located in the
examples directory of the project. To run
the examples, clone the repository and run the following command in your
terminal from the project root directory.
cargo run --example psph
