NAME

tac_pwd - generate DES or MD5 encryption of a password

SYNOPSIS

tac_pwd [ -ehm] [salt]

DESCRIPTION

tac_pwd prompts for a clear-text password and produces a DES encryption of that password on stdout which may be used in lieu of the clear-text representation in the tac_plus.conf(5).
The DES salt may be provided as a command-line argument.

COMMAND-LINE OPTIONS

-e
Do not echo the plain-text password to the terminal.
-h
Display help message.
-m
Generate an MD5 encryption, instead of DES. This only works if crypt() on your host supports MD5.
