SYNOPSIS

       authpass [--cipher blowfish|md5] [--file filename] [--password password]
       realm username roles...



DESCRIPTION

       The authpass program creates authentication passwords for Appweb. It
       should be used to create passwords for the "config" or "app"
       authentication stores. If using the "config" authentication store, use
       the "--file" option to specify the name of the password file.

            authpass --file auth.conf --password pass1 example.com joshua
            administrator buyer

       If using the "app" authentication store, omit the "--file" option and the
       password will be displayed to the standard output.

OPTIONS

       --cipher blowfish|md5
              Specifies the cipher to use to hash the password. Default is
              blowfish. Blowfish is substantially more secure.  MD5 must be used
              for digest authentication.

       --password password
              Specifies a password to use to for the user.

       --file filename
              Update the specified password configuration file.


DESCRIPTION

       The authpass program is used to create and manage user passwords.  Appweb
       uses the same authorization file and format for Basic, Digest and Post
       authentication stores. This simplifies administration.
