Re: Patch: 'ldapmodify -y file' reads password from file (ITS#2031)
One of the nice things about using the whole contents of a file
is that one can use dd if=/dev/random of=/srv/passwd to create
a password file and use userPassword:< file:///srv/passwd to add
it to the directory and use -y in scripts.
For those who want to use it for simple passwords, the
file can easily be created using:
echo -n 'secret' > /srv/passwd
where echo is the builtin version, so args are not exposed
