command passwd and command mcrypt - password size of 1 GB

Fri Jul 13, 2018 4:32 pm

As long I have investigated about passwd and about mcrypt - is that command passwd is involving command mcrypt for encryption of passwd.

But it seems that mcrypt is not installed in solus ?!

When I make query with

whereis mcrypt

then result is empty ?!

The idea is to pump up password size to 1 GB and I have modified the source files of mcrypt already for usage of password with size of 1 GB.
I want to read in 1 GB as password from usb-stick or from media dvd. For this I have prepared a little shell-script.

All is finish.

It needs only to be tested.

For this it is necessary to find the files of mcrypt, because mcrypt is used by passwd.
