NAME

Password::Policy::Exception::PwnedError - Die if the password pwned API is unreachable

SYNOPSIS

    use Password::Policy;
    use Try::Tiny;

    my $pass = 'password1';

    my $pp = Password::Policy->new (config => 'policy.yaml');
    try {
        $pp->process({ password => $pass });
    } catch {
        warn "This password '$pass' is pwned - don't use it";
        # Other actions
    }

DESCRIPTION

This exception is thrown when Password::Policy::Rule::Pwned cannot determine whether or not a password has been pwned. The determination depends on a remote service which may not be available for any number of reasons.

METHODS

error

    $exception->error ();

This method is not expected to be called directly but rather via Password::Policy->process. It returns the text of an appropriate error which in this case is "Invalid response checking for pwned password".

SEE ALSO

For how to determine if passwords are pwned, see Password::Policy::Rule::Pwned.

To understand how to use this as part of a wider password policy enforcement program, see Password::Policy.
