DESCRIPTION

lppasswd adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest password 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 usernames do not have to match local UNIX usernames.  

OPTIONS

lppasswd supports the following options:
-g groupname

SECURITY ISSUES

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 privileges to unprivileged users, paranoid system administrators may wish to disable or change the ownership of the program to an unprivileged account.
