MOSQUITTO_PASSWD(1)		   Commands		   MOSQUITTO_PASSWD(1)

NAME
       mosquitto_passwd	- manage password files	for mosquitto

SYNOPSIS
       mosquitto_passwd	[-c | -D] passwordfile username

       mosquitto_passwd	-b passwordfile	username password

       mosquitto_passwd	-U passwordfile

DESCRIPTION
       mosquitto_passwd	is a tool for managing password	files for the
       mosquitto MQTT broker.

       Usernames must not contain ":". Passwords are stored in a similar
       format to crypt(3).

OPTIONS
       -b
	   Run in batch	mode. This allows the password to be provided at the
	   command line	which can be convenient	but should be used with	care
	   because the password	will be	visible	on the command line and	in
	   command history.

       -c
	   Create a new	password file. If the file already exists, it will be
	   overwritten.

       -D
	   Delete the specified	user from the password file.

       -U
	   This	option can be used to upgrade/convert a	password file with
	   plain text passwords	into one using hashed passwords. It will
	   modify the specified	file. It does not detect whether passwords are
	   already hashed, so using it on a password file that already
	   contains hashed passwords will generate new hashes based on the old
	   hashes and render the password file unusable.

       passwordfile
	   The password	file to	modify.

       username
	   The username	to add/update/delete.

       password
	   The password	to use when in batch mode.

EXAMPLES
       Add a user to a new password file:

       o   mosquitto_passwd -c /etc/mosquitto/passwd ral

       Delete a	user from a password file

       o   mosquitto_passwd -D /etc/mosquitto/passwd ral
