Provides password hashing utilities


PasswordHasher Component

The PasswordHasher component provides secure password hashing utilities.

Getting Started

composer require symfony/password-hasher
use Symfony\Component\PasswordHasher\Hasher\PasswordHasherFactory;

// Configure different password hashers via the factory
$factory = new PasswordHasherFactory([
    'common' => ['algorithm' => 'bcrypt'],
    'memory-hard' => ['algorithm' => 'sodium'],

// Retrieve the right password hasher by its name
$passwordHasher = $factory->getPasswordHasher('common');

// Hash a plain password
$hash = $passwordHasher->hash('plain'); // returns a bcrypt hash

// Verify that a given plain password matches the hash
$passwordHasher->verify($hash, 'wrong'); // returns false
$passwordHasher->verify($hash, 'plain'); // returns true (valid)
