Changing the Plain-Text Password Encryption Method

Problem

When setting up passwords for login accounts on the router, if you assigned plain-text passwords, the default encryption is SHA1. You want to change this to either DES or MD5.

Solution

Use the following command to change the encryption used for plain-text passwords to DES:

	[edit]
	aviva@router1# set system login password format des

For MD5 encryption, use the following command:

	[edit]
	aviva@router1# set system login password format md5

 

Discussion

All passwords that you enter in a JUNOS configuration are encrypted. For plain-text passwords, you can use one of three types of encryption: SHA1 (the default and the strongest), MD5, or DES. The encryption type that you configure is used for all plain-text passwords. You cannot specify different encryption types for different users.
