DESCRIPTION
libxcrypt is a modern library for one-way hashing of passwords. It 
supports a wide variety of both modern and historical hashing methods: 
yescrypt, gost-yescrypt, scrypt, bcrypt, sha512crypt, sha256crypt, 
md5crypt, SunMD5, sha1crypt, NT, bsdicrypt, bigcrypt, and descrypt. It 
provides the traditional Unix crypt and crypt_r interfaces, as well as a 
set of extended interfaces pioneered by Openwall Linux, crypt_rn, 
crypt_ra, crypt_gensalt, crypt_gensalt_rn, and crypt_gensalt_ra.
