makekey(1)

Name

makekey - generate encryption key

Description

In Oracle Solaris 11.3 and earlier releases, the makekey command was provided to generate encryption keys such as used for hashing passwords. It was limited to an 8 byte key and the DES algorithm.

This command is no longer included in Oracle Solaris 11.4 and later releases. Instead of makekey, you can use the pwhash(1) command to generate password hashes using newer and more secure hash algorithms.
