Module documentation for 0.5.0
Welcome to scrypt
This is a Haskell library providing bindings to Colin Percival’s scrypt implementation. Scrypt is a key derivation function designed to be far more secure against hardware brute-force attacks than alternative functions such as PBKDF2 or bcrypt.
Details of the scrypt key derivation function are given in a paper by Colin Percival, Stronger Key Derivation via Sequential Memory-Hard Functions: PDF.
We are happy to receive bug reports, fixes, documentation enhancements, and other improvements.
Please report bugs via the github issue tracker.
