       /usr/sbin/slappasswd  [-v]  [-u]  [-s  secret|-T file] [-h
       hash] [-c salt-format]


       Slappasswd is used to generate an userPassword value suit­
       able  for  use  with ldapmodify(1) or slapd.conf(5) rootpw
       configuration directive.


       -v     enable verbose mode.

       -u     Generate  RFC   2307   userPassword   values   (the
              default).  Future versions of this program may gen­
              erate alternative syntaxes by default.  This option
              is provided for forward compatibility.

       -s secret
              The secret to hash.  If this and -T are absent, the
              user will be prompted for the secret to  hash.   -s
              and -T and mutually exclusive flags.

       -T file
              Hash  the contents of the file.  If this and -s are
              absent, the user will be prompted for the secret to
              hash.  -s and -T and mutually exclusive flags.

       -h scheme
              If  -h  is specified, one of the following RFC 2307
              schemes may be specified: {CRYPT},  {MD5},  {SMD5},
              {SSHA}, and {SHA}.  The default is {SSHA}.

              {SHA}  and  {SSHA}  use  the  SHA-1 algorithm (FIPS
              160-1), the latter with a seed.

              {MD5} and {SMD5} use the MD5 algorithm (RFC  1321),
              the latter with a seed.

              {CRYPT} uses the crypt(3).

              {CLEARTEXT}  indicates that the new password should
              be added to userPassword as clear text.

       -c crypt-salt-format
              Specify the format of the salt passed  to  crypt(3)
              when  generating  {CRYPT}  passwords.   This string
              needs to be in sprintf(3) format  and  may  include
              one  (and only one) %s conversion.  This conversion
              will be substituted with a string random characters
              from [A-Za-z0-9./].  For example, "%.2s" provides a
              two character salt and "$1$%.8s"  tells  some  ver­

       should  be  inplace  before  using  LDAP simple bind.  The
       hashed password values should be protected as if they were
       clear text passwords.
