       openssl-passwd, passwd - compute password hashes


       openssl passwd [-help] [-crypt] [-1] [-apr1] [-aixmd5] [-5] [-6] [-salt string] [-in file]
       [-stdin] [-noverify] [-quiet] [-table] [-rand file...]  [-writerand file] {password}


       The passwd command computes the hash of a password typed at run-time or the hash of each
       password in a list.  The password list is taken from the named file for option -in file,
       from stdin for option -stdin, or from the command line, or from the terminal otherwise.
       The Unix standard algorithm crypt and the MD5-based BSD password algorithm 1, its Apache
       variant apr1, and its AIX variant are available.


           Print out a usage message.

           Use the crypt algorithm (default).

       -1  Use the MD5 based BSD password algorithm 1.

           Use the apr1 algorithm (Apache variant of the BSD algorithm).

           Use the AIX MD5 algorithm (AIX variant of the BSD algorithm).

       -6  Use the SHA256 / SHA512 based algorithms defined by Ulrich Drepper.  See

       -salt string
           Use the specified salt.  When reading a password from the terminal, this implies

       -in file
           Read passwords from file.

           Read passwords from stdin.

           Don't verify when reading a password from the terminal.

           Don't output warnings when passwords given at the command line are truncated.

           In the output list, prepend the cleartext password and a TAB character to each
           password hash.

       -rand file...
           A file or files containing random data used to seed the random number generator.
           Multiple files can be specified separated by an OS-dependent character.  The separator
           is ; for MS-Windows, , for OpenVMS, and : for all others.

       [-writerand file]
           Writes random data to the specified file upon exit.  This can be used with a
           subsequent -rand flag.


         % openssl passwd -crypt -salt xx password

         % openssl passwd -1 -salt xxxxxxxx password

         % openssl passwd -apr1 -salt xxxxxxxx password

         % openssl passwd -aixmd5 -salt xxxxxxxx password
