Taipy.auth.hash taipy password

Generate a hashed password for the Taipy authenticator.

Available in Taipy Enterprise only

This function exists only in the Enterprise edition of Taipy.

If the application relies on the internal authenticator (the "Taipy" authenticator protocol), and if passwords are required, then all passwords need to be hashed before they are provided to the authenticator (in the users database file or dictionary).

In order to hash the password string, this function needs to be provided with a secret text value that initializes the hashing process. This text string must be stored in the environment variable 'TAIPY_AUTH_HASH'. This allows to make it impossible to find the original password should someone find hashed text string, and hide the hashing key away from text files.
