Name        : py-bcrypt
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 0.2
Release     : 4.fc13
URL         : http://www.mindrot.org/projects/py-bcrypt/
Summary     : Python bindings for OpenBSD's Blowfish password hashing code
Description :
python-bcrypt is a Python wrapper of OpenBSD's Blowfish password hashing
code, as described in "A Future-Adaptable Password Scheme" by Niels
Provos and David Mazières.

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).


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update py-bcrypt' at the command line.
