Hello all,
I think this might be interesting (from a security point of view :) :
passwords hashed using the blowfish algorithm, as in OpenBSD.
Openwall has it & (as I've read on some ml threads) suse does too.

urls: (for the libc patch) (for a blowfish-compat pam module).

I haven't tried it yet, but I plan to some time later & I'll post the
results on this ML. If someone else has done it already I' d like to see
some feedback.
