lppasswd(1) -- Linux man page
NAMElppasswd - add, change, or delete digest passwords.
SYNOPSISlppasswd [ -a ] [ -g groupname ] [ -x ] [ username ]
DESCRIPTIONlppasswd adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest password file, passwd.md5. When run by a normal user, lppasswd will prompt for the old and new passwords. When run by the super-user, lppasswd can add new accounts (-a username), change existing accounts (username), or delete accounts (-x username) in the digest password file. Digest usernames do not have to match local UNIX usernames, but only UNIX usernames are supported by the CUPS client programs (lp(1), lpr(1), etc.)
SECURITY ISSUESThe lppasswd command is installed setuid to root. While every attempt has been made to make it secure against exploits that could grant super-user priviledges to unpriviledged users, paranoid system administrators may wish to disable or change the ownership of the program to an unpriviledged account.
