fastpbkdf2-hs

Haskell bindings to the fastpbkdf2 library. This is currently (Dec 2016) the fastest Haskell library for computing the pbkdf2, outperforming competitors by several order of magnitude (unsuprisingly, as it hooks into some C code!):

Installation

This library depends from OpenSSL. I have tried to make this self-contained, but the crypto layer of OpenSSL (or BoringSSL) requires some fine-tuned ASM code generated during the build process. Porting everything over in a customised Build.hs would have been too much pain, but PR are super welcome!
