     wpa_passphrase - Set WPA passphrase for a SSID

     wpa_passphrase ssid passphrase

     The wpa_passphrase utility pre-computes PSK entries for network
     configuration blocks of a wpa_supplicant.conf(5) file.  It prints a
     single network configuration block to standard output.

     The following arguments must be specified on the command line:

     ssid        The SSID whose passphrase should be derived.

     passphrase  The passphrase to use.  If not included on the command line,
                 passphrase will be read from standard input.  The passphrase
                 must be 8 to 63 characters in length.

     wpa_supplicant.conf(5), ifconfig(8), wpa_cli(8), wpa_supplicant(8)

     The wpa_passphrase utility first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.

     The wpa_passphrase utility was written by Jouni Malinen
     <jkmaline@cc.hut.fi>.  This manual page is derived from the
     wpa_passphrase.sgml file included in the wpa_supplicant(8) distribution.
