cli-sedHow can I use the CLI sed command to encrypt a password?
The sed command can be used to encrypt passwords in Linux. It is a stream editor which can be used to perform basic text transformations on an input stream (a file or input from a pipeline).
To encrypt a password using sed, the following command can be used:
echo "password" | sed 's/./&/g'
This command will output the encrypted password as follows:
p p p p p p p p p p p
The code has a few parts:
echo "password"- This echoes out the string "password" which will be used as the input for the sed command.
sed 's/./&/g'- This is the sed command which will perform the encryption. It uses a substitution command
sto replace each character (denoted by
.) with itself (denoted by
&) and the
gflag to perform the substitution for all matches.
