BCrypt Sessions Not Persisting

Reported by Marc Love | December 14th, 2009 @ 08:49 PM

Changing the crypto_provider to Authlogic::CryptoProviders::BCrypt seems to be breaking the persisting of user sessions.

To replicate, create a copy of the authlogic_example, replace "acts_as_authentic" with:

  acts_as_authentic do |c|
    c.crypto_provider = Authlogic::CryptoProviders::BCrypt
  end

in user.rb and add the bcrypt gem to the initializer block in environment.rb:

  config.gem "bcrypt-ruby", :lib => "bcrypt"

Run the functional tests and you'll get the following failure:

1) Failure: test_should_create_user_session(UserSessionsControllerTest) [/test/functional/user_sessions_controller_test.rb:11]: is not true.

...which traces back to this assertion:

    assert user_session = UserSession.find

    I'm doing a project on Bcrypt and this data provided is very relevant for me since I have the same doubt. Actually, best wrongful death attorney in los angeles Bcrypt is a password hashing function. It allows us to build a password security platform that can scale with computation power. It uses a modified key setup algorithm which is timely quite expensive.
