sipdigest - compute digest for user's secret in specific sip realm


sipdigest [-realm=string] [-md5|-sha1|-rmd160] USER SECRET


This is a tool to compute secret digest values for a USER account which has a SECRET (password) so that the digest can then be safely placed in the sipwitch XML config files so that the password is not exposed in a potentially readable file. SIP digests are computed using the authentication realm of the sip server for a given USER id and SECRET (password). Hence, it is desirable to set the realm once, because changing it will also require changing all the user hashes.

By default, sipdigest uses the current sip authentication realm and algorithm as set by the siprealm command, though alternate realms and hashing algorithms may also be specified. Since sipdigest can compute an arbitrary digest it can be useful to build database entries or config files where secret hashes must be stored.


Select md5 digest algorithm.
Compute digest based on the STRING realm passed instead of current server's realm.
Select rmd160 digest algorithm.
Select sha1 digest algorithm.


Any error in argument format will return an exit status of 3. The command will normally return with exit status of 0 after printing the requested digest.
