=head1 NAME

Password::Policy::Rule::Pwned - Check passwords haven't been pwned


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

    my $pass = 'password1';

    my $pp = Password::Policy->new (config => 'policy.yaml');
    try {
        $pp->process({ password => $pass });
    } catch {
        if ($_->isa ("Password::Policy::Exception::PwnedError")) {
            warn "Unable to verify pwned status - try again later\n";
        warn "'$pass' failed checks: $_ - don't use it\n";
        # Other actions


Plug this rule into L<Password::Policy> to
validate potential passwords against the list from
L<haveibeenpwned.com|https://haveibeenpwned.com/API/v2>. It
uses the recommended
function to ensure that neither the password nor its full hash is ever
transferred over the wire.

The Password::Policy configuration file should set the "pwned" attribute
to 1 in any policy where this rule should apply. A trivial example of
such a policy might be:

        length: 8
        algorithm: "Plaintext"
        pwned: 1

As with all other L<Password::Policy::Rule> types, this will throw an
exception to indicate an unsafe password. As it relies on a network
service to operate it will also throw an exception if the service is
unavailable for whatever reason. The two exceptions are different and
may be interrogated to determine the difference.

    try {
        $pp->process({ password => $pass });
    } catch {
        if ($_->isa ("Password::Policy::Exception::Pwned")) {
            warn "This password '$pass' is pwned - don't use it";
        } elsif ($_->isa ("Password::Policy::Exception::PwnedError")) {
            warn "Could not check if password is pwned - use at own risk";
        } else {
            warn "Password not pwned but still bad: $_";
        # Other actions

Alternatively the response may be stringified and the messages parsed for
key phrases, although this will be less robust.

    try {
        $pp->process({ password => $pass });
    } catch {
        if (/has been pwned/) {
            warn "This password '$pass' is pwned - don't use it";
        } elsif (/Invalid response/) {
            warn "Could not check if password is pwned - use at own risk";
        } else {
            warn "Password not pwned but still bad: $_";
        # Other actions

=head1 METHODS

=head2 check

    $rule->check ($clearpw);

This method is not expected to be called directly but rather via
C<Password::Policy-E<gt>process>. It takes one argument which is the
password to be checked. If the password is a utf-8 string it must be
encoded first.

The method will throw a L<Password::Policy::Exception::Pwned> exception
if the password is pwned. If the API server is unavailable it will warn
and then throw a L<Password::Policy::Exception::PwnedError> exception. It
will return true if the password is verifiably not pwned.


Note that this code is merely a user-friendly API client. It relies
entirely upon the data held at api.pwnedpasswords.com and which is made
available free of charge to end users such as your good self. If this
data is useful to you then please consider making a
L<donation|https://haveibeenpwned.com/Donate> to help fund this service
and allow Troy's good work to continue.
