STRING2KEY(8)               System Manager's Manual              STRING2KEY(8)

     string2key - map a password into a key

     string2key [-5 | --version5] [-4 | --version4] [-a | --afs] [-c cell |
                --cell=cell] [-w password | --password=password]
                [-p principal | --principal=principal] [-k string |
                --keytype=string] password

     string2key performs the string-to-key function.  This is useful when you
     want to handle the raw key instead of the password.  Supported options:

     -5, --version5
             Output Kerberos v5 string-to-key

     -4, --version4
             Output Kerberos v4 string-to-key

     -a, --afs
             Output AFS string-to-key

     -c cell, --cell=cell
             AFS cell to use

     -w password, --password=password
             Password to use

     -p principal, --principal=principal
             Kerberos v5 principal to use
