NAME

Crypt::PasswdMD5 - Provides interoperable MD5-based crypt() functions

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Crypt::PasswdMD5;

    $cryptedpassword = unix_md5_crypt($password, $salt);
    $apachepassword = apache_md5_crypt($password, $salt);



DESCRIPTION

the unix_md5_crypt() provides a crypt()-compatible interface to the rather new MD5-based crypt() function found in modern operating systems. It’s based on the implementation found on FreeBSD 2.2.[56]-RELEASE and contains the following license in it:



 "THE BEER-WARE LICENSE" (Revision 42):
 <phk@login.dknet.dk> wrote this file.  As long as you retain this notice you
 can do whatever you want with this stuff. If we meet some day, and you think
 this stuff is worth it, you can buy me a beer in return.   Poul-Henning Kamp



apache_md5_crypt() provides a function compatible with Apache’s .htpasswd files. This was contributed by Bryan Hart <bryan@eai.com>. As suggested by William A. Rowe, Jr. <wrowe@lnd.com>, it is exported by default.

For both functions, if a salt value is not supplied, a random salt will be generated. Contributed by John Peacock <jpeacock@cpan.org>.

    EXPORT

None by default.
