NAME

CGI::Application::Plugin::Authentication::Driver::Filter::sha1 - SHA1 Password filter

METHODS

filter ( (hex base64 binary), $string )

This will generate an SHA1 hash of the string in the requested format. By default, hex encoding is used.

 my $filtered = $class->filter('base64', 'foobar'); # iEPX+SQWIR3p67lj/0zigSWTKHg

 -or-

 my $filtered = $class->filter(undef, 'foobar'); # 8843d7f92416211de9ebb963ff4ce28125932878

check ( (hex base64 binary), $string, $sha1 )

This will generate an SHA1 hash of the string, and compare it against the provided SHA1 string. If no encoding type is specified, the length of the SHA1 string will be tested to see what format it is in.

 if ($class->check(undef, 'foobar', '8843d7f92416211de9ebb963ff4ce28125932878')) {
     # they match
 }
