API call to check XoN for a specific password anonymously.
Sample output on successfully finding a matching password hash:
https://passwords.xposedornot.com/api/v1/pass/anon/[first 10 characters of keccak-512 hash]
For people who are interested to query this portal through the use of API will find this quite useful. The API given above returns only two output, either successful or not. Let us assume you are searching for "123456” which is the most used password in known history.
The output will consist of JSON output for easy reference. Primary reasons for giving an output in JSON instead of a yes/no is to ensure that this can be further used by people to develop and improve on the huge list of real time exposed passwords aggregated here.
Alright, the first element "anon" is added to all password hashes stored in XoN for enabling privacy conscious users to search as well. Second element "char" is a list of characteristics of the password, which can be further used for understanding the strength of the password to know if this will meet the requirements of applications in need. Many websites have policies on the use of selecting passwords based on number of characters, mixture of alphabets, numbers and special characters.
The following table explains a bit more about the characteristics in simple terms :
| Digits || Count of numbers
| Alphabets || Count of alphabets
| Special chars || Count of special chars
| Length || Length of the password
The last one "count"
denotes the number of times, this password was observed in the collected xposed data breaches. For a comprehensive list of all xposed websites, please visit Xposed websites-XoN
Also, one another point to note is the use of Keccak-512
hashing for searching and storing data in XoN. Traditional hashing algorithms like MD5 and SHA1 are currently deprecated and also considering the enormous number of records exposed, I have gone ahead with Keccak-512 hashes.
Yes, Keccak-512 is 128 characters long and it consumes more storage.
Two sample Keccak-512 hashes given for easy reference:
test - 1e2e9fc2002b002d75198b7503210c05a1baac4560916a3c6d93bcce3a50d7f00fd395bf1647b9abb8d1afcc9c76c289b0c9383ba386a956da4b38934417789e
pass - adf34f3e63a8e0bd2938f3e09ddc161125a031c3c86d06ec59574a5c723e7fdbe04c2c15d9171e05e90a9c822936185f12b9d7384b2bedb02e75c4c5fe89e4d4
Sample output on not finding the matching password hash:
"Error": "Not found"
