NAME
     crypt_sunmd5 - password hashing  module  using  MD5  message
     hash algorithm

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_sunmd5.so

DESCRIPTION
     The crypt_sunmd5 module is a one-way password hashing module
     for  use with crypt(3C) that uses the MD5 message hash algo-
     rithm.  The  algorithm  identifier  for  crypt.conf(4)   and
     policy.conf(4) is md5.

     This module is designed to make it difficult to crack  pass-
     words  that  use brute force attacks based on high speed MD5
     implementations that use code inlining, unrolled loops,  and
     table lookup.
