I need a password script, that can maintance a large amount of user in an Unix environment.
I do not care about what type of scripting except Perl.  And its need to be semi-hard to crack.

You should use .htaccess and .htgroup files for this....very easy to maintain and it works well on a unix server.  Here is a link with some more information....

Encryption:  http://www.flash.net/cgi-bin/pw.pl

Hope this helps....avoids scripting and this is unbreakable because the passwords are encrypted.
