Re: How to identify user password encryption algorithm.

The current man page for security(4) indicates that crypt(3C) uses a DES-based algorithm unless you change the CRYPT_DEFAULT setting in the /etc/default/security file. Supposedly other hashes start with a $#$, where '#' is, for example, equal to 6 when the hashing algorithm is set to SHA-512.
