var (
    ErrPasswordInvalid = errors.New("invalid password")

A valid password is impossible with the given constraints.

func Entropy

func Entropy(password string) float64

Entropy computes the number of entropy bits in the given password, assumingly it was randomly generated.

func FromCharsets

func FromCharsets(charsetsUsed charsets.CharsetCollection, length int) (float64, error)

FromCharsets computes the number of entropy bits in a string with the given length that utilizes at least one character from each of the given charsets. It does not perform any subsetting/de-duplication upon the given charsets; they are just used as-is.

Package entropy imports 7 packages (graph).
