crypt_bsdmd5(5)       Standards, Environments, and Macros      crypt_bsdmd5(5)



NAME
       crypt_bsdmd5 - password hashing module using MD5 message hash algorithm

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_bsdmd5.so

DESCRIPTION
       The  crypt_bsdmd5  module  is a one-way password hashing module for use
       with crypt(3C) that uses the MD5 message hash algorithm. The  algorithm
       identifier  for  crypt.conf(4)  and  policy.conf(4) is 1. The output is
       compatible with md5crypt on BSD and Linux systems.

       The maximum password length for crypt_bsdmd5 is 255 characters.
