lppasswd - add, change, or delete digest passwords.
lppasswd [ -a ] [ -g groupname ] [ -x ] [ username ]
lppasswd adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest pass-
word 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 user-
names do not have to match local UNIX usernames, but only UNIX user-
names are supported by the CUPS client programs (lp(1), lpr(1), etc.)
The -g option specifies a group other than the system group - "sys",
"system", or "root", depending on the operating system.
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 priviledges to unpriviledged users, paranoid system adminis-
trators may wish to disable or change the ownership of the program to
an unpriviledged account.
