We have a need to create password hashes offline, is there a tool or script available to take a cleartext password and generate a phash?
For example, the audit team wants to be able to select a password and generate the hash, so we can later paste into a firewall when provisioning the 'audit' user, even though I would never know what their password actually is.
Something that could run on MS-Windows, batch or Perl script would be easiest.
You can use the "request password-hash" command on the CLI of the firewall to generate these.
admin@lab-firewall> request password-hash username user password test1234
Here's an off-box method to do something similar:
The $ is a delimiter. 1=MD5(Unix) hash type. rIosAGEBWJQtFeRy9AX0=the hash
If you go to that website, and type out a cleartext password & salt (I don't think the user name is needed on this site), and then click "Generate". You can scroll down to MD5(Unix) and see the generated hash.
They provide a little more "behind the scenes" detail here: http://wiki.insidepro.com/index.php/MD5%28Unix%29
