Secure Password Hashing

Utilities for secure password hashing via the argon2 algorithm. It is a relatively new hashing algorithm and is believed to be very secure. The 'argon2' implementation included in the package is the reference implementation. The package also includes some utilities that should be useful for digest authentication, including a wrapper of 'blake2b'. For similar R packages, see sodium and 'bcrypt'. See <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argon2> or <https://eprint.iacr.org/2015/430.pdf> for more information.

argon2

argon2 is an R package for secure password hashing via the argon2 algorithm. It is a relatively new hashing algorithm and is believed to be very secure. The package also includes some utilities that should be useful for digest authentication, including a wrapper of blake2b. For similar R packages, see sodium and bcrypt.

The package includes a source distribution of the latest implementation from the argon2 developers: https://github.com/P-H-C/phc-winner-argon2. Note that we are unaffiliated with their project; if we break something, don't blame them!

Installation

You can install the stable version from CRAN using the usual install.packages():

install.packages("argon2")

The development version is maintained on GitHub, and can easily be installed by any of the packages that offer installations from GitHub:

### Pick your preference
devtools::install_github("wrathematics/argon2")
ghit::install_github("wrathematics/argon2")
remotes::install_github("wrathematics/argon2")

Usage

library(argon2)

pass <- "myPassw0rd!"
hash <- pw_hash(pass)
hash
## [1] "$argon2i$v=19$m=8192,t=20,p=1$KZrdgD04xYK158QoZUEJgQb0QgayasYvjl98hRXf5C7cCqDr/MPARFdp4HtnrSrpZr70SupTrfGVfovUp81VeA$V8WHHdR7a4S0RTOFDAjJCHIerlIjzsPAuPu0rT2lpnObmNOUhldPIgEqBzxQBF71tyjsEIuuRMdG/b5JN3omiA"
## attr(,"hashtype")
## [1] "argon2"

pw_check(hash, pass)
## [1] TRUE
pw_check(hash, "password")
## [1] FALSE
pw_check(hash, "1234")
## [1] FALSE
