py-bcrypt project is a Python wrapper of OpenBSD's Blowfish password hashing code, as described in "A Future-Adaptable Password Scheme" by Niels Provos and David Mazi?res.

This system hashes passwords using a version of Bruce Schneier's Blowfish block cipher with modifications designed to raise the cost of off-line password cracking and frustrate fast hardware implementation.

The computation cost of the algorithm depends on a parameter, so it can be increased as computers get faster.

Python 2.4
