Subject: /etc/shadow encryption
I would like to know if you know where i can get the encryption algorythm
that Sun Solaris 2.5 uses to write its /etc/shadow file.
I am trying to write some proggy that can let me create users thru email,
i have so many by day!! i want to make this an automated process,
and all i need now is to know the way this encryption is made.
Thanks in advance,
