NAME

sss_obfuscate - obfuscate a clear text password

CONTENTS

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 \(lqldap_default_authtok\(rq parameter of a given SSSD domain and the \(lqldap_default_authtok_type\(rq parameter is set to \(lqobfuscated_password\(rq. 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.
