Hello,

Is there any way to encrypt a user input and validate it toward the /etc/shadow of Red Hat Linux 9.
I am not sure how to get the salt of the DES encryption.
Here is a sample line for user 'georges' and password 'password'

georges:$1$W9sPfBqe$rS0jkCnkkj.uLc9dQYUF61:12595:0:99999:7:::

Thanks
