authpasswd - Generate login passwords
authpasswd is a helper utility that generates encrypted passwords for the Courier authentication library. The Courier authentication library is capable of using several different encryption methods for storing passwords. authpasswd issues a password prompt. Enter the same password twice (for verification purposes). authpasswd computes and prints the encrypted password. The encrypted password can be inserted verbatim into the appropriate account record that´s processed by the authentication library´s authmysql, authpgsql, or authldap module. method may be set to one of the following literals: crypt Use the traditional DES-based encrypted password. md5 Compute a base64-encoded MD5 password hash. md5raw Compute a hexadecimal-encoded MD5 password hash. sha1 Compute a SHA1 password hash. ssha Compute a salted SHA1 password hash. sha256 Compute a SHA256 password hash. If not specified, method defaults to the modified-MD5 password encryption algorithm that´s used in Linux (note that this is different from the “md5” password hash method).
