./textproc/p5-String-Compare-ConstantTime, Perl5 module for timing side-channel protected string compare

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.320nb2, Package name: p5-String-Compare-ConstantTime-0.320nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This module provides one function, equals (not exported by default).

You should pass this function two strings of the same length. It will
return true if they are string-wise identical and false otherwise, just
like eq. However, comparing any two differing strings will take a fixed
amount of time, unlike eq.

NOTE: If the lengths of the strings are different, equals will return
false right away.


Required to run:
[lang/perl5]

Required to build:

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.

Log message:
p5-String-Compare-ConstantTime: fix DESCR

The comparison takes a constant amount of time, no matter whether the
strings are equal, or even the same, or different. This one sentence had
been added to DESCR out of nowhere.
