[ANN] Ruby/Password 0.1.0


(Ian Macdonald) #1

Hi,

This is to announce Ruby/Password.

Ruby/Password comprises a set of useful methods for creating,
verifying and manipulating passwords. It includes an interface to
CrackLib, a library commonly used for checking password strength.

For more information, please see:

http://www.caliban.org/ruby/

In spite of the 0.1.0 numbering, things seem to work as expected, even
though I had to don my C programmer’s cap for this library, which is
something from which I generally shy away.

The target audience for this library is system administrators who need
to write Ruby programs that prompt for, generate, verify and encrypt
passwords.

Please send me e-mail concerning bugs, code improvements, suggestions
for features, etc.

Ian
