mkpasswd.c documentation This is documentation for the updated mkpasswd.c included with a number of ircd, irc services, and non-IRC related programs This version of mkpasswd can create Blowfish, MD5, SHA256, and SHA512 crypted passwords, with either randomly generated or user provided salts. Options: -x Generate a SHA256 password -y Generate a SHA512 password -m Generate an MD5 password -b Generate a Blowfish password -l Specify a length for a random MD5 or Blowfish salt -r Specify a number of rounds for a Blowfish password Default 4, no more than 6 recommended -s Specify a salt, up to 16 for MD5, SHA256, and SHA512 up to 22 for Blowfish -p Specify a plaintext password to use -? Get brief help -h Get extended help Without the presence of any parameters, it'll generate a SHA512 hash with a randomly generated salt and prompting for the password (without echo). An MD5, SHA256, and SHA512 salt consists of up to 16 alphanumeric characters (plus '.' and '/'), such as 'tGd' or 'J6d4dfG'. A Blowfish salt consists of up to 22 alphanumeric characters (plus '.' and '/'). Blowfish also specifies a number of rounds*, by default 4. Blowfish may not always be available, but MD5, SHA256, and SHA512 are guaranteed to be. This program should work anywhere Charybdis does; if you find otherwise, file a bug. * Blowfish's rounds parameter is a logarithm, not an integer value
