PasswordPing Ruby Client Library
This README covers the following topics:
The compiled library is available as a Ruby Gem:
gem install passwordping
You can build the project from the source in this repository.
Here's the API in a nutshell.
require 'passwordping' # Create a new PasswordPing instance - this is our primary interface for making API calls passwordping = ::.(apiKey: YOUR_API_KEY, secret: YOUR_API_SECRET) # Check whether a password has been compromised if passwordping.check_password("password-to-test") puts("Password is compromised") else puts("Password is not compromised") end # Check whether a specific set of credentials are compromised if passwordping.check_credentials("[email protected]", "password-to-test") puts("Credentials are compromised") else puts("Credentials are not compromised") end # get all exposures for a given user exposures = passwordping.get_exposures_for_user("[email protected]") puts(exposures.count.to_s + " exposures found for [email protected]") # now get the full details for the first exposure found details = passwordping.get_exposure_details(exposures.exposures) puts("First exposure for [email protected] was " + details.title)
More information in reference format can be found below.
The PasswordPing constructor
The standard constructor takes the API key and secret you were issued on PasswordPing signup.
passwordping = ::.(apiKey: YOUR_API_KEY, secret: YOUR_API_SECRET)
If you were instructed to use an alternate API endpoint, you may call the overloaded constructor and pass the base URL you were provided.
passwordping = ::.(apiKey: YOUR_API_KEY, secret: YOUR_API_SECRET, baseURL: "https://api-alt.passwordping.com/v1")
OSX and Linux platforms are fully supported. Windows is not, since FFI support is needed for some of the cryptography libraries, which is problematic on Windows.
Ruby 2.0.0 and up are supported.
The RubyDocs contain more complete references for the API functions.
