The FAQ for icecast 1.3.7 and 1.3.9 contains the following entry:
Q13: What's the story with crypted passwords?
A13: Normally, icecast and shoutcast servers keep the passwords uncrypted,
either in a configfile, or specified on the command line. This is pretty
poor security. Newer versions of icecast provide a configuration option
(--with-crypt). With this option, then the passwords in the configuration
file (icecast.conf) and the ones specified on the command line, should
be crypted. To produce these crypted passwords, use the mkpasswd program
distributed with icecast. Be careful in the configuration file not to
leave any junk chars after the passwords.
But I don't find a "mkpasswd" anywhere? Where do I get it? Thanks.
Hope you have a very nice day, :-)
