The "password_hash" Module

Description

This module allows passwords to be hashed and adds the /MKPASSWD command which allows the generation of hashed passwords for use in the server configuration.

Configuration

To load this module use the following <module> tag:

<module name="password_hash">

This module requires no other configuration.

Commands

Name Parameter Count Syntax Description

Example Usage

Hashes the password "hunter2" using the HMAC-SHA-256 algorithm:

/MKPASSWD hmac-sha256 hunter2

Special Notes

You should only run this command on a server that you trust as the plaintext password may be intercepted by an attacker.
