NAME
       eenc - perform password encryption for RefDB clients

SYNOPSIS
       eenc [-p	ABC-DE-FG-HI] password

DESCRIPTION
       RefDB(7)	clients	send passwords to refdbd(1) in an encrypted form.
       Programmers that	implement custom clients in languages other than C or
       Perl may	use this program to perform the	password encryption if
       implementing the	algorithm in the target	language is too	cumbersome.
       The program writes the encoded password to stdout. As the encoding
       algorithm is symmetrical, you can use this utility to encode plain text
       passwords as well as to decode encrypted	passwords.

       The algorithm used by eenc is derived from the ENIGMA algorithm.
       Security	is limited but should be sufficient for	the purposes of	a
       reference management software. Please see the RefDB manual (see below)
       for further information about the client-server protocol.

OPTIONS
       -p ABC-DE-FG-HI
	  The slot and rotor position string sent back by refdbd(1) during the
	  first	stage of the client-server protocol. ABC denotes which wheel
	  goes into which slot,	and the	remaining digits encode	the positions
	  of the wheels	in slots 0 through 2.

       password
	  The plain-text password when encrypting, or the encoded password
	  when decrypting.

       RefDB (7), refdbd (1).
