This command is a facility for allowing users to generate an encrypted password hash. This is useful if the user is about to become an IRC operator for the first time on the network. However this command can also be useful for generating random strings. Therefore, we allow anybody to use it. This command takes 2 arguments, the encryption algorithm to use, and the text to hash. Currently only one encryption algorithm is supported, hmac-sha256. To encrypt the word password, you can use the following command:

/mkpasswd hmac-sha256 password
