Crypt::PasswdMD5(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  Crypt::PasswdMD5(3)

NAME
       Crypt::PasswdMD5	- Provide interoperable	MD5-based crypt() functions

SYNOPSIS
	       use strict;
	       use warnings;

	       use Crypt::PasswdMD5;

	       my($password)	   = 'seekrit';
	       my($salt)	   = 'pepperoni';
	       my($unix_crypted)   = unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt);
	       my($apache_crypted) = apache_md5_crypt($password, $salt);

	       Or:

	       use strict;
	       use warnings;

	       use Crypt::PasswdMD5 'random_md5_salt';

	       my($length) = 7;
	       my($salt_1) = random_md5_salt($length);
	       my($salt_2) = random_md5_salt();	# Default to $length ==	8.

DESCRIPTION
       "apache_md5_crypt()" provides a function	compatible with	Apache's
       ".htpasswd" files.  This	was contributed	by Bryan Hart <bryan@eai.com>.
       This function is	exported by default.

       The "unix_md5_crypt()" provides a crypt()-compatible interface to the
       rather new MD5-based crypt() function found in modern operating
       systems.	It's based on the implementation found on FreeBSD
       2.2.[56]-RELEASE.  This function	is also	exported by default.

       For both	functions, if a	salt value is not supplied, a random salt will
       be generated, using the function	random_md5_salt().  This function is
       not exported by default.

LICENSE	AND WARRANTY
       This code and all accompanying software comes with NO WARRANTY. You use
       it at your own risk.

       This code and all accompanying software can be used freely under	the
       same terms as Perl itself.

METHODS
   apache_md5_crypt($password, $salt)
       This sets a magic variable, and then passes all the calling parameters
       to "unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt)".

       Returns an encrypted version of the given password.

       Basically, it's a very poor choice for anything other than password
       authentication.

   random_md5_salt([$length])
       Here, []	indicate an optional parameter.

       Returns a random	salt of	the given length.

       The maximum length is 8.

       If $length is omitted, it defaults to 8.

   unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt)
       Returns an encrypted version of the given password.

       Basically, it's a very poor choice for anything other than password
       authentication.
