RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for lppasswd (redhat section 1)

lppasswd(1)			      Easy Software Products			      lppasswd(1)

NAME
       lppasswd - add, change, or delete digest passwords.

SYNOPSIS
       lppasswd [ -a ] [ -g groupname ] [ -x ] [ username ]

DESCRIPTION
       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, but only UNIX usernames are supported by the
       CUPS client programs (lp(1), lpr(1), etc.)

       The -g option specifies a group other than the system group - "sys", "system", or  "root",
       depending on the operating system.

SECURITY ISSUES
       The  lppasswd  command  is  installed setuid to root. While every attempt has been made to
       make it secure against exploits that could grant super-user priviledges	to  unpriviledged
       users,  paranoid  system administrators may wish to disable or change the ownership of the
       program to an unpriviledged account.
