NAME
crypt.conf - configuration file for pluggable crypt modules
SYNOPSIS
/etc/security/crypt.conf
DESCRIPTION
crypt.conf is the configuration file for the pluggable crypt architecture. Each crypt module must provide a function to generate a password hash, crypt_genhash_impl(3C), and a function to generate the salt, crypt_gen- salt_impl(3C). There must be at least one entry in crypt.conf with the same name as is stored in the crypt_algorithm_magic symbol of the module. The documentation provided with the module should list this name. The module_path field specifies the path name to a shared library object that implements crypt_genhash_impl(), crypt_gensalt_impl(), and crypt_algorithm_magic. If the path name is not absolute, it is assumed to be rela- tive to /usr/lib/security/$ISA. If the path name contains the $ISA token, the token is replaced by an imple- mentation-defined directory name that defines the path relative to the calling program's instruction set architecture. The params field is used to pass module-specific options to the shared objects. See crypt_genhash_impl(3C) and crypt_gensalt_impl(3C). It is the responsibility of the module to parse and interpret the options. The params field can be used by the modules to turn on debugging or to pass any module-specific parameters that control the output of the hashing algorithm.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Provide compatibility for md5crypt-generated passwords. The default configuration preserves previous Solaris behavior while adding compatibility for md5crypt-gener- ated passwords as provided on some BSD and Linux systems. # # crypt.conf # 1 /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_bsdmd5.so Example 2 Use md5crypt to demonstrate compatibility with BSD- and Linux-based systems. The following example lists 4 algorithms and demonstrates how compatibility with BSD- and Linux-based systems using md5crypt is made available, using the algorithm names 1 and 2. # # crypt.conf # md5 /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_md5.so rot13 /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_rot13.so # For *BSD/Linux compatibilty # 1 is md5, 2 is Blowfish 1 /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_bsdmd5.so 2 /usr/lib/security/$ISA/crypt_bsdbf.so
