NAME
       sss_obfuscate - obfuscate a clear text password

SYNOPSIS
       sss_obfuscate [options] [PASSWORD]

DESCRIPTION
       sss_obfuscate converts a	given password into human-unreadable format
       and places it into appropriate domain section of	the SSSD config	file.

       The cleartext password is read from standard input or entered
       interactively. The obfuscated password is put into
       "ldap_default_authtok" parameter	of a given SSSD	domain and the
       "ldap_default_authtok_type" parameter is	set to "obfuscated_password".
       Refer to	sssd-ldap(5) for more details on these parameters.

       Please note that	obfuscating the	password provides no real security
       benefit as it is	still possible for an attacker to reverse-engineer the
       password	back. Using better authentication mechanisms such as client
       side certificates or GSSAPI is strongly advised.

OPTIONS
       -h,--help
