Using ZfcUser, Authentication Always fails.

Post by dark707 » Thu Nov 12, 2015 1:45 pm

I have implemented ZfcUser in my application. The problem is that the authentication always fails even if the password is correct.

I have digged into the problem. What I have noticed is that, the application retrieves password hash from the password and pass it to the Bcrypt verify method.

Here is the code from Zend

Code: Select all

if (!$bcrypt->verify($credential, $userObject->getPassword())) {
    // Password does not match
      ->setMessages(array('Supplied credential is invalid.'));
    return false;
Now the bcrypt verify method works as follows.

Code: Select all

public function verify($password, $hash)
    $result = crypt($password, $hash);
    return Utils::compareStrings($hash, $result);
my password is 'admin123', the generated hash saved for it in database is "$2y$14$9QsDD3.T3xwCnZsMsiBft.fwLewL.0L5pyViAJY0EbNz0ECIGDi5u"

but I see that it will never match, because the verify method uses the Hash value as salt. I am doing something wrong, or is there some bug in the framework/?
