shacrypt – licenseZurück
Java Port By: James Ratcliff, firstname.lastname@example.org This class implements the new generation, scalable, SHA256-based Unix 'crypt' algorithm developed by a group of engineers from Red Hat, Sun, IBM, and HP for common use in the Unix and Linux /etc/shadow files. The Linux glibc library (starting at version 2.7) includes support for validating passwords hashed using this algorithm. The algorithm itself was released into the Public Domain by Ulrich Drepper
. A discussion of the rationale and development of this algorithm is at http://people.redhat.com/drepper/sha-crypt.html and the specification and a sample C language implementation is at http://people.redhat.com/drepper/SHA-crypt.txt This Java Port is Copyright (c) 2008 The University of Texas at Austin.
