NAME

Data::Password::zxcvbn::Match::Repeat - match class for repetitions of other matches

VERSION

version 1.0.3

DESCRIPTION

This class represents the guess that a certain substring of a password is a repetition of some other kind of match.

ATTRIBUTES

repeat_count

integer, how many time the "base_token" is repeated

base_token

the match that is repeated; this will be an instance of some other Data::Password::zxcvbn::Match::* class

base_guesses

the minimal estimate of the attempts needed to guess the "base_token"

base_matches

the list of patterns that "base_guesses" is based on

METHODS

make

  my @matches = @{ Data::Password::zxcvbn::Match::Repeat->make(
    $password, \%opts,
  ) };

Scans the $password for repeated substrings, then recursively analyses them like the main password_strength function would do:

  password_strength($substring,\%opts);

"base_guesses" and "base_matches" come from that recursive call.

estimate_guesses

The number of guesses is the "base_guesses" times the "repeat_count".

feedback_warning

feedback_suggestions

This class suggests not to repeat substrings.

fields_for_json

The JSON serialisation for matches of this class will contain token i j guesses guesses_log10 repeat_count base_guesses base_token base_matches.
