Thread: Does the pam_pwdfile module support clear text passwords?

  1. #1

    Default Does the pam_pwdfile module support clear text passwords?

    I need to utilize pam_pwdfile in order to authenticate virtual users in vsftpd. I know I can utilize htpasswd2 -m to create a password file however it is vital since I am administrating several machines in our organization that the password generated be in clear text. Does anyone on here know if that is possible using the pam_pwdfile module for authentication or does anyone else have a better solution?
    Best Regards,
    Cole

    Probably pam_userdb crypt=none?

    Just curious. Why plaintext? I don't quite see why administering several
    machines affects that. You can copy encrypted text entries across
    machines :-?
