> 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,
