Django 1.4+ with SSL only
This library integrates the current Django "best of" PCI auth libraries into a single application then fills in the gaps. Filling in the gaps involves making decisions for you e.g.:
And adding additional functionality e.g.:
- Database models to persist event data e.g. lockouts (See: docs/MODELS.rst).
- Additional recently_used validator for django-passwords.
- Stronger password hashing that allows for selection of hashing algorithm scrypt, bcrypt, PBKDF2, etc. via settings.py. 
- Checking for strong passwords with a default length setting overrideable in settings.py. 
- Integrate strong passwords into Django Admin.
- Lock out account for n minutes after x failed log-in attempts. 
- Set inactivity timeouts.
- Generate event/email when lock-out occurs.
- Set flags disallowing certain accounts to be locked out.
- Log every log-on and explicit log-out (not necessary to log timed out log-ins).
- Track last four passwords and do not allow re-use. 
- Force password reset after X amount of time.
Before you use this library in your applications you may wish to demo its functionality. To do so, follow these steps:
$ virtualenv . $ bin/pip install django-pci-auth $ bin/django-admin.py syncdb --settings=django_pci_auth.settings $ bin/django-admin.py runserver --settings=django_pci_auth.settings

Stronger password hashing
This is a built-in feature in Django 1.4+. Documented here for convenience:
PASSWORD_HASHERS = ( # From https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/topics/auth/: # "[redacted] This means that Django will use the first hash in the list # to store all passwords, but will support checking passwords stored with # the rest of the hashes in the list. If you remove a hash from the list # it will no longer be supported. 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.PBKDF2PasswordHasher', 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.PBKDF2SHA1PasswordHasher', 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.BCryptPasswordHasher', 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.SHA1PasswordHasher', 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.MD5PasswordHasher', 'django.contrib.auth.hashers.CryptPasswordHasher', )
How many old passwords will you store? This feature will prevent users from using the same passwords over and over again; it will keep the last OLD_PASSWORD_STORAGE_NUM number of passwords around and remove anything older. E.g.:
OLD_PASSWORD_STORAGE_NUM = 4
