./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: 0.312nb1, Package name: p5-String-Compare-ConstantTime-0.312nb1, 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. Also, comparing two identical strings will take a
different amount of time than comparing two differing strings.

Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that
* mention perl, or
* have a directory name starting with p5-*, or
* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.
