unafs - script to warn users about their weak passwords


unafs password-files cell-name


This manual page documents briefly the unafs command, which is part of the john package. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. john, better known as John the Ripper, is a tool to find weak passwords of users in a server.
The unafs tool gets password hashes out of the binary AFS database, and produces a file usable by John.


john(8), mailer(8), unique(8), unshadow(8).
The programs are documented fully by John's documentation, which should be available in /usr/share/doc/john or other location, depending on your system.


This manual page was written by Jordi Mallach <>, for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
John the Ripper and mailer were written by Solar Designer <>. The complete list of contributors can be found in the CREDITS file in the documentation directory.
