I am looking for a small cross-platform utility that I can recommend people use to generate salted SHA1 digest passwords suitable for use with OpenLDAP. The utility should:
- Not require installing or any options to run
- Not transmit the password over the wire in any form
- Enforce some basic password quality rules
- Generate a hash compatible with those made with
Installing OpenLDAP, enough of a Unix environment to run
slappasswd, or even just the tools needed to SSH to a remote host on random customer's Windows or Mac computers just to generate them a password is too much work. What is a simpler option? Is there a puttygen equivalent for hashed passwords?
