NAME

lppasswd - add, change, or delete digest passwords.

SYNOPSIS

lppasswd [ username ]
lppasswd -a [ -g groupname ] username
lppasswd -x username

DESCRIPTION

lppasswd adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest password file, passwd.md5. When run by a normal user, lppasswd will prompt for the old and new passwords. When run by the super-user, lppasswd can add new accounts (-a username), change existing accounts (username), or delete accounts (-x username) in the digest password file. Digest usernames do not have to match local UNIX usernames.

OPTIONS

lppasswd supports the following options:
TagDescription
-g groupname
  Specifies a group other than the default system group.

SECURITY ISSUES

The lppasswd command is installed setuid to root. While every attempt has been made to make it secure against exploits that could grant super-user privileges to unprivileged users, paranoid system administrators may wish to disable or change the ownership of the program to an unprivileged account.
