Guard your users from security problems such as being hacked that start by having stupid passwords

Introduction

stupid-passwords is an NPM module that can be used to verify the user provided password is not one of the top 10,000 worst passwords as analysed by a respectable IT security analyst. Read about all here, here(wired) or here(telegram)

Getting Started

Installation

$ npm install stupid-passwords --save

Usage

Short example:

const stupidPasswords = require('stupid-passwords');

const isStupid = stupidPasswords.isStupid('123456'); // true
// or use:
// const isStupid = stupidPasswords.isOneOfThem('123456');
// const isStupid = stupidPasswords.check('123456');

Embedding it into your EXPRESS application:

'use strict';

const app = require('express')();
const stupidPasswords = require('stupid-passwords');

...

app.post('/user/create', (req, res) => {
  const userPassword = req.body.userPassword;

  if (stupidPasswords.check(userPassword)) {
    const rate = stupidPasswords.rateOfUsage(userPassword);
    let message = 'Dear user, that\'s a stupid password!';
    message += ' Why? For every 100,000 user accounts on the internet, ';
    message += rate.frequency + ' are "protected" using that same password.';
    message += ' Hacker\'s paradise.';

    // DO NOT send this back to your user, it's only for demo purposes
    res.status(200).send(message);
  } else {
    // that password is awesome!
    // that user SMART! Give them the key to success!
  }
});

...

app.listen(8080, () => {
  console.log('Express server listening on on port 8080');
});

// expose app
module.exports = app;
