The Shadow password file utilities package includes the programs necessary to convert traditional V7 UNIX password files to the SVR4 shadow password format, and additional tools to maintain password and group files (that work with both shadow and non-shadow passwords).

Shadow passwords enhance system security by keeping sensitive information in files that are not widely readable on a UNIX system. It is recommended that you use shadow passwords rather than the traditional system passwd file.
