Log Message:
Importing ruby-bcrypt version 2.1.4 package.

bcrypt() is a sophisticated and secure hash algorithm designed by The
OpenBSD project for hashing passwords. bcrypt-ruby provides a simple,
humane wrapper for safely handling passwords.

= bcrypt-ruby

An easy way to keep your users' passwords secure.


== Why you should use bcrypt

If you store user passwords in the clear, then an attacker who steals
a copy of your database has a giant list of emails and passwords. Some
of your users will only have one password -- for their email account,
for their banking account, for your application. A simple hack could
escalate into massive identity theft.

It's your responsibility as a web developer to make your web
application secure -- blaming your users for not being security
experts is not a professional response to risk.

bcrypt allows you to easily harden your application against these
kinds of attacks.
