PASSWORD.LUA(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual	       PASSWORD.LUA(8)

NAME
     password.lua -- FreeBSD password module

DESCRIPTION
     password.lua contains functionality for prompting for and checking	pass-
     words.

     Before using the functionality provided by	password.lua, it must be in-
     cluded with a statement such as the following:

	   local password = require("password")

     The following functions are exported from password.lua:

	   password.read(prompt_length)	   Read	a password following a prompt.
					   prompt_length is required so	that
					   the twiddle may be properly drawn
					   as the user is typing.

	   password.check()		   Drives the primary password checks
					   done	by the loader.	The
					   password.check() function will
					   check bootlock_password,
					   geom_eli_passphrase_prompt, and
					   password and	prompt the user	for
					   passwords as-needed.	 If password
					   is set, the autoboot	sequence will
					   begin as the	user is	prompted for a
					   password.
