Passable API is a free, lightweight, RESTful web service that developers can easily implement to prevent password hacking and breaches.
Developers can send the hash of the password and its algorithm and will receive a 0 (insecure password), or 1 (secure password) response. Developers will find it even easier for them to connect to this API than implementing a password check for user sign-up: just send the request, and if the answer, is 1; it's ok for the user to sign-up, if it is 0 ask the user to type another password. Passable API is currently in beta.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
