        "The crypt-hash type is used to store passwords using
a hash function.  The algorithms for applying the hash
function and encoding the result are implemented in
various UNIX systems as the function crypt(3).

A value of this type matches one of the forms:

  $0$<clear text password>
  $<id>$<salt>$<password hash>
  $<id>$<parameter>$<salt>$<password hash>

The '$0$' prefix signals that the value is clear text.  When
such a value is received by the server, a hash value is
calculated, and the string '$<id>$<salt>$' or
$<id>$<parameter>$<salt>$ is prepended to the result.  This
value is stored in the configuration data store.
If a value starting with '$<id>$', where <id> is not '0', is
received, the server knows that the value already represents a
hashed value and stores it 'as is' in the data store.

When a server needs to verify a password given by a user, it
finds the stored password hash string for that user, extracts
the salt, and calculates the hash with the salt and given
password as input.  If the calculated hash value is the same
as the stored value, the password given by the client is

This type defines the following hash functions:

  id | hash function | feature
   1 | MD5           | crypt-hash-md5
   5 | SHA-256       | crypt-hash-sha-256
   6 | SHA-512       | crypt-hash-sha-512

The server indicates support for the different hash functions
by advertising the corresponding feature.";
