jBCrypt-0.4 – BCrypt library for Java

Description

jBCrypt is a Java implementation of OpenBSD's Blowfish password
hashing code, compatible with the canonical C implementation of the
bcrypt algorithm.

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 is parametised, so it can be
increased as computers get faster. The intent is to make a compromise
of a password database less likely to result in an attacker gaining
knowledge of the plaintext passwords (e.g. using John the Ripper).
