lppasswd - add, change, or delete digest passwords.
lppasswd [ username ]
lppasswd -a [ -g groupname ] username
lppasswd -x username
lppasswd adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest password file, passwd.md5.
When run by a normal user, lppasswd will prompt for the old and new passwords. When run
by the super-user, lppasswd can add new accounts (-a username), change existing accounts
(username), or delete accounts (-x username) in the digest password file. Digest usernames
do not have to match local UNIX usernames.
lppasswd supports the following options:
Specifies a group other than the default system group.
By default, the lppasswd program is not installed to allow ordinary users to change their
passwords. To enable this, the lppasswd command must be made setuid to root with the com-
chmod u+s lppasswd
While every attempt has been made to make lppasswd secure against exploits that could
grant super-user privileges to unprivileged users, paranoid system administrators may wish
to use Basic authentication with accounts managed by PAM instead.
