Salutations, o pious Monks,
I am looking for some words of wisdom.
I have a DB where Linux machines are authenticating multiple services over tables filled with SHA-256 crypt() hashes. These are the ones looking like "$5$saltsaltsaltsalt$" followed by the actual hash, as introduced in Linux with glibc 2.7.
The reference documentation is the man 3 crypt page of a recent Linux distribution.
Now, upcoming NetBSD machines would need to draw in the same tables in order to authenticate, but the system crypt() here is not providing support for SHA-256 "$5$..." hashes.
Is it found, in the abyss of your wisdom, a clue about where can I look for a pure Perl implementation of such a crypt() function ?
Blessed are You, who scribe the varieties of matters with only one Language.
