The code comes from John the Ripper password cracker, and is placed in the public domain. You can find more information and download the package here: http://www.openwall.com/crypt/ >From the README: You can use the provided routines in your own packages, or link them into a C library. I've provided hooks for linking into GNU libc 2.1, but it shouldn't be too hard to get this into another library. Note that simply adding this code into your libc is probably not enough to make your system use the new password hashing algorithm. Changes to passwd(1), PAM modules, or whatever else your system uses will likely be needed as well. These are not (yet?) a part of this package. Signed, Solar Designer
