NAME

       radcrypt - generate password hash for use with radius, or validates a password hash

SYNOPSIS

       radcrypt [-d|--des] [-m|--md5] [-c|--check] plaintext_password [hashed_password]

DESCRIPTION

       radcrypt  generates a hashed digest of a plaintext password, or can validate if a password
       hash matches a plaintext password. DES  and  MD5  hashes  are  currently  supported.  When
       generating a password hash a random salt is generated and applied.

       A hashed password can be validated by specifying -c or --check and passing hashed_password
       after plaintext_password on the command  line.   In  this  case  hashed_password  will  be
       checked  to  see if it matches plaintext_password. If so "Password OK" will be printed and
       the exit status will be 1, otherwise "Password BAD" will be printed and exit  status  will
       be 0 (Note this is the opposite of a normal successful shell status).

OPTIONS

       -d --des
              Use  a  DES  (Data  Encryption  Standard)  hash (default).  Ignored if performing a
              password check.

       -m --md5
              Use a MD5 (Message Digest 5) hash.  Ignored if performing a password check.

       -c --check
              Perform a validation check on a password hash to verify if it matches the  plantext
              password.

EXAMPLES

       $ radcrypt foobar
       HaX0xn7Qy650Q
       $ radcrypt -c foobar HaX0xn7Qy650Q
       Password OK
