|ENCRYPT(1)||General Commands Manual||ENCRYPT(1)|
encryptprints the encrypted form of string to the standard output. This is mostly useful for encrypting passwords from within scripts.
The options are as follows:
If no string is specified,
encrypt reads one string per line from standard
input, encrypting each one. In the case where no specific algorithm or
specific user login class was given as a command line option, the algorithm
specified in the default class in /etc/login.conf
will be used.
For Blowfish, a new random salt is automatically generated for each password.
Specifying the string on the command line should be discouraged; using the standard input is more secure.
encryptfirst appeared in OpenBSD 1.2.
