password_verify

(PHP 5 >= 5.5.0)

password_verifyVerifies that a password matches a hash

Beschreibung

boolean password_verify ( string $password , string $hash )

Verifies that the given hash matches the given password.

Note that password_hash() returns the algorithm, cost and salt as part of the returned hash. Therefore, all information that's needed to verify the hash is included in it. This allows the verify function to verify the hash without needing separate storage for the salt or algorithm information.

Parameter-Liste

password

Das Passwort des Benutzers.

hash

Ein Hash, der durch password_hash() erzeugt wurde.

R├╝ckgabewerte

Returns TRUE if the password and hash match, or FALSE otherwise.

Beispiele

Beispiel #1 password_verify() example

<?php
// See the password_hash() example to see where this came from.
$hash '$2y$07$BCryptRequires22Chrcte/VlQH0piJtjXl.0t1XkA8pw9dMXTpOq';

if (
password_verify('rasmuslerdorf'$hash)) {
    echo 
'Password is valid!';
} else {
    echo 
'Invalid password.';
}
?>

Das oben gezeigte Beispiel erzeugt folgende Ausgabe:

Password is valid!

This function can be used to verify hashes created with other functions like crypt(). For example:

<?php

$hash
= '$1$toHVx1uW$KIvW9yGZZSU/1YOidHeqJ/';

if (
password_verify('rasmuslerdorf', $hash)) {
    echo
'Password is valid!';
} else {
    echo
'Invalid password.';
}

// Output: Password is valid!

?>

As Vasil Toshkov stated, password_verify() can be used to verify a password created by crypt() or password_hash()

That is because passwords created by password_hash() also use the C crypt sheme

If you want to verify older plain MD5-Hashes you just need to prefix them with $1$

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypt_(C) for more information.

If you get incorrect false responses from password_verify when manually including the hash variable (eg. for testing) and you know it should be correct, make sure you are enclosing the hash variable in single quotes (') and not double quotes (").

PHP parses anything that starts with a $ inside double quotes as a variable:

<?php
// this will result in 'Invalid Password' as the hash is parsed into 3 variables of
// $2y, $07 and $BCryptRequires22Chrcte/VlQH0piJtjXl.0t1XkA8pw9dMXTpOq
// due to it being enclosed inside double quotes
$hash = "$2y$07$BCryptRequires22Chrcte/VlQH0piJtjXl.0t1XkA8pw9dMXTpOq";

// this will result in 'Password is valid' as variables are not parsed inside single quotes
$hash = '$2y$07$BCryptRequires22Chrcte/VlQH0piJtjXl.0t1XkA8pw9dMXTpOq';

if (
password_verify('rasmuslerdorf', $hash)) {
    echo
'Password is valid!';
} else {
    echo
'Invalid password.';
}
?>
