Please add a function for the classical Unix crypt(3) hash
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CODEC-104
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-104
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Christian Hammers


The Sun Java APIs lack a function for the classical Unix crypt(3) hash that was used in e.g.
/etc/passwd or Apache htpasswd and is still widely used dispite the availablitity of better
algorithms like MD5 or SHA.

Apart from me cursing Sun for producing monster crypto APIs but missing the little things
that one really needs, there are already several Apache projects
that implemented UnixCrypt for their own:
  org.apache.directory.studio.ldapbrowser.core.utils.UnixCrypt
  org.apache.fulcrum.crypto.impl.UnixCrypt
  and maybe others 

bye,

-christian-
