I'm trying to write a PHP script that creates new passwords, but I can't determine how the passwords are actually encrypted.  It looks like Crypt is being used, with salts, but I can't find the salts.  Could you provide the parameters for the password encryption process, so that I might replicate it in PHP?

Thank you.

Re: PHP script to create passwords

If you look in the iredmail tools folder, there's a bunch of scripts for creating users and that, it appears to use openssl to encrypt the password

CRYPT_PASSWD="$(openssl passwd -1 ${username})"
