tac_pwd - generate DES or MD5 encryption of a password
tac_pwd [-ehm] [ salt]
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.
|-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.|
