Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

NAME
xencrypt, xdecrypt, passwd2des - RFS password encryption
SYNOPSIS
#include <rpc/des_crypt.h> void passwd2des(char *passwd, char *key); int xencrypt(char *secret, char *passwd); int xdecrypt(char *secret, char *passwd);
DESCRIPTION
WARNING: Do not use these functions in new code. They do not achieve any type of acceptable cryptographic security guarantees. The function passwd2des() takes a character string passwd of arbitrary length and fills a character array key of length 8. The array key is suitable for use as DES key. It has odd parity set in bit 0 of each byte. Both other functions described here use this function to turn their argument passwd into a DES key. The xencrypt() function takes the ASCII character string secret given in hex, which must have a length that is a multiple of 16, encrypts it using the DES key derived from passwd by passwd2des(), and outputs the result again in secret as a hex string of the same length. The xdecrypt() function performs the converse operation.
RETURN VALUE
The functions xencrypt() and xdecrypt() return 1 on success and 0 on error.
VERSIONS
These functions are available in glibc since version 2.1.
