bugfix update in Fedora EPEL 6 for python-passlib

Status: stable 6 months ago

Update to 1.7.1


  • cisco_asa and cisco_pix: Fixed a number of issues which under certain conditions caused prior releases to generate hashes that were unverifiable on Cisco systems.
  • PasswordHash.hash() will now warn if passed any settings keywords. This usage was deprecated in 1.7.0, but warning wasn’t properly enabled. See Customizing the Configuration for the preferred way to pass settings.
  • setup.py: Don’t append timestamp when run from an sdist. This should fix some downstream build issues.
  • passlib.tests.test_totp: Test suite now traps additional errors that datetime.utcfromtimestamp() may throw under python 3, which should fix some test failures on architectures with rarer ILP sizes. It also works around Python 3.6 bug 29100.


  • CryptContext: The harden_verify flag has been turned into a NOOP and deprecated. It will be removed in passlib 1.8 along with the already-deprecated min_verify_time (issue 83).

Other Changes

  • passlib.tests.utils: General truncation policy details were hammered out, and additional hasher tests were added to enforce them.
  • documentation: Various updates & corrections.
