openssl command


SYNOPSIS

openssl passwd [-crypt] [-1] [-apr1] [-salt string] [-in file] [-stdin] [-quiet] [-table] {password}


DESCRIPTION

The openssl passwd command computes the hash of a password typed at run-time or the hash of each password in a list. The password list is taken from the named file for option -in file, from stdin for option -stdin, and from the command line otherwise. The UNIX standard algorithm crypt and the MD5-based BSD password algorithm 1 and its Apache variant apr1 are available.

Options

-crypt

-1 

uses the MD5 based BSD password algorithm 1.

-apr1 

uses the apr1 algorithm (Apache variant of the BSD algorithm).

-salt string 

uses the specified salt.

-in file 

reads passwords from file.

-stdin 

reads passwords from stdin.

-quiet 

does not output warnings when passwords given at the command line are truncated.

-table 

in the output list, prepends the cleartext password and a TAB character to each password hash.


EXAMPLES

openssl passwd -crypt -salt xx password

prints xxj31ZMTZzkVA.

openssl passwd -1 -salt xxxxxxxx password

prints $1$xxxxxxxx$8XJIcl6ZXqBMCK0qFevqT1.

openssl passwd -apr1 -salt xxxxxxxx password

prints $apr1$xxxxxxxx$dxHfLAsjHkDRmG83UXe8K0.
