The Caml Hump: OCaml-safepass


OCaml-safepass is a library offering facilities for the safe storage of user passwords. By "safe" we mean that passwords are salted and hashed using the Bcrypt algorithm. Salting prevents rainbow-table based attacks, whereas hashing by a very time-consuming algorithm such as Bcrypt renders brute-force password cracking impractical.
