Bug#155401: ITP: mkntpwd -- tool to create LM and NT MD4 password hashes

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : mkntpwd
  Version         : N/A
  Upstream Author : Anton Roeckseisen <anton@genua.de>
* URL             : http://demog.berkeley.edu/~aperrin/tips/src/mkntpwd.tar.gz
* License         : BSD-type, GPL (samba source files)
  Description     : tool to create LM and NT MD4 password hashes

It is useful when using Samba w/ LDAP to initialize passwords in the

I'm not completely sure how to proceed though. I have the impression
that mkntpwd is basically unmaintained upstream. At least, I couldn't
find a download location provided by upstream anywhere nor a version
number. Anyway, since it is a tiny program where is it not very likely
that more features are added in the future, it'd prefer forking it right
now. Source should be cleaned up quite a bit, too, and stuff like python
bindings would be nice...

There is another issue I was thinking about. Currently, it contains a
couple of source files from Samba. All of that functionality could also
be used by linking against libsmbclient. Should I rather do that?
Libsmbclient is fat though and depends *a lot* on a lot of other stuff I
don't need, so I'd prefer not to.

Package: libsmbclient
