I'd like to know what kind of encryption algorithm Solaris 2.5.1 uses to
encrypt its passwords and where I can get any demo source codes of this



1. Encryption Algorithm Needed (desperately!)


I am after a small piece of code that will perform a password encryption similarto the encryption algorithm that is used to store passwords in the UNIX
/etc/passwd file.  Can somebody please tell me where I can get something like
this, and ideally send it to.  I'm sure that it is only a small snippet of code.

Replies via Email please - I don't read ness all that often.
