Description Author

This package can be used to prevent users from reusing recently used passwords.

It can observe events for creating or updating user model objects, so it can track changes in the user password to keep records of hashes of previously used passwords.

The package also provides provides a class that can be used to validate a password form field value by looking at the history of passwords used previously by the current user that may be trying to change his current password.

One way to make systems more secure is to allow the users to use stronger passwords. This means that among other aspects the user must not use a password that was used in the past.

This package provides a solution that can be used with Laravel based PHP applications to keep track of hashes of the user passwords that were used over time.

So when he changes a password, the system is able to check if the password was used before. At the same time this package will not disclose previous passwords as it only stores hashes of old passwords.

Laravel Password History Validation

Latest Version on Packagist Build Status Quality Score Total Downloads

Prevent users from reusing recently used passwords.

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require infinitypaul/laravel-password-history-validation

Configuration

To get started, you'll need to publish the config file, and migrate the database:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=password-history

Modify the config file according to your project, then migrate the database

php artisan migrate

Usage

This package will observe the created and updated event of the models (check the config file for settings) and records the password hashes automatically.

In Your Form Request or Inline Validation, All You Need To Do Is Instantiate The NotFromPasswordHistory class passing the current user as an argument

<?php
use Infinitypaul\LaravelPasswordHistoryValidation\Models\PasswordHistoryRepo;

$this->validate($request, [
            'password' => [
                'required',
                new NotFromPasswordHistory($request->user())
            ]
        ]);

Cleaning Up Old Record - (Optional)

Because We Are Storing The Hashed Password In Your Database, Your Database Can Get Long When You Have Lots Of Users

Add PasswordHistoryTrait To Your User Model

<?php
use Infinitypaul\LaravelPasswordHistoryValidation\Traits\PasswordHistoryTrait;

class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use Notifiable, PasswordHistoryTrait;
