NAME
crypt_unix - traditional UNIX crypt algorithm DESCRIPTION
The crypt_unix algorithm is the traditional UNIX crypt algorithm. It is not considered sufficiently secure for current systems and is pro- vided for backwards compatibility. The crypt_sunmd5(5), crypt_bsdmd5(5), or crypt_bsdbf(5) algorithm should be used instead. The algorithm identifier for policy.conf(4) is __unix__. There is no entry in crypt.conf(4) for this algorithm. The crypt_unix algorithm is internal to libc and provides the string encoding function used by crypt(3C) when the first character of the salt is not a "$". This algorithm is based on a one-way encryption algorithm with variations intended (among other things) to frustrate use of hardware imple- mentations of a key search. Only the first eight characters of the key passed to crypt() are used with this algorithm; the rest are silently ignored. The salt is a two-character string chosen from the set [a-zA-Z0-9./]. This string is used to perturb the hashing algo- rithm in one of 4096 different ways. The maximum password length for crypt_unix is 8 characters. USAGE
The return value of the crypt_unix algorithm might not be portable among standard-conforming systems. See standards(5). ATTRIBUTES
