Linux Shadow Password HOWTO
Michael H. Jackson, v1.3, 3 April 1996
This document aims to describe how to obtain, install, and configure the Linux
password Shadow Suite. It also discusses obtaining, and reinstalling other software and network daemons that require access to user
passwords. This other software is not actually part of the Shadow Suite, but
these programs will need to be recompiled to support the Shadow
Suite. This document also contains a programming example for adding shadow support to a program. Answers to some of the more frequently asked questions are included near the end of this document.
