Documentation: How Django stores passwords out of date

Reported by: startup.canada@… Owned by: ptone
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords:

Description

In "Password management in Django" documentation page https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.5/topics/auth/passwords/ , section "How Django stores passwords" it says: "The password attribute of a User object is a string in this format:
algorithm$hash"

This is out of date (since v1.4?) It should say something like:

"The password attribute of a User object is a string in this format:
algorithm$iterations$salt$hash" , where iterations is the work factor.

Thanks

  • Component changed from contrib.auth to Documentation
  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Owner changed from nobody to ptone
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted
  • Version changed from 1.5-alpha-1 to master

Looks like this was missed in the 1.4 timeframe and wasn't caught during the recent refactor either.
