SYNOPSIS

 use Crypt::Password::Util qw(crypt_type looks_like_crypt crypt);

 say crypt_type('62F4a6/89.12z');                    # CRYPT
 say crypt_type('$1$$...');                          # MD5-CRYPT
 say crypt_type('$apr1$4DdvgCFk$...');               # MD5-CRYPT
 say crypt_type('$5$4DdvgCFk$...');                  # SSHA256
 say crypt_type('$6$4DdvgCFk$...');                  # SSHA512
 say crypt_type('1a1dc91c907325c69271ddf0c944bc72'); # PLAIN-MD5
 say crypt_type('foo');                              # undef

 say looks_like_crypt('62F4a6/89.12z');   # 1
 say looks_like_crypt('foo');             # 0

 say crypt('pass'); # automatically choose the appropriate type and salt

FUNCTIONS

crypt_type($str) => STR

Return crypt type, or undef if $str does not look like a crypted password. Currently known types: CRYPT (traditional DES crypt), MD5-CRYPT (including Apache variant), SSHA256 (salted SHA256), SSHA512 (salted SHA512), and PLAIN-MD5.

looks_like_crypt($str) => BOOL

Return true if $str looks like a crypted password.

crypt($str) => STR

Like Perl's crypt(), but automatically choose the appropriate crypt type and random salt. Will first choose SSHA512 with 64-bit random salt. If not supported by system, fall back to MD5-CRYPT with 32-bit random salt. If that is not supported, fall back to CRYPT.

SEE ALSO

Authen::Passphrase which recognizes more encodings (but currently not SSHA256 and SSHA512).
