New Features

  • A disallow_common_passwords feature has been added. This feature by default will disallow the 10,000 most common passwords:

    enable :disallow_common_passwords

    You can supply your own file containing common passwords separated by newlines (ā€œnā€):

    most_common_passwords_file '/path/to/file'

    You can also supply a password dictionary directly as any object that responds to include?:

    most_common_passwords some_password_dictionary_object

    The reason only the 10,000 most common passwords are used by default is larger password files would significantly bloat the size of the gem. Also, because the most common passwords are kept in memory by default for performance reasons, larger password files can bloat the memory usage of the process (the disallow_common_passwords feature should use around 500KB of memory by default). For very large password dictionaries, consider using a custom object that does not keep all common passwords in memory.

Other Improvements

  • Rodauth no longer uses the Rack::Request#[] method to get parameter values. This method is deprecated in Rack 2.
