wpa_passphrase — utility for generating a 256-bit pre-shared WPA key from an ASCII passphrase
wpa_passphrase 〈ssid〉 [passphrase]
The wpa_passphrase utility is a small program for generating a 256-bit pre-shared WPA key from an ASCII passphrase and a given SSID. The output is formatted for inclusion in wpa_supplicant.conf(5).
If wpa_passphrase is called with only an SSID as argument it will prompt for a passphrase on standard input.
The wpa_passphrase utility first appeared in FreeBSD
The wpa_passphrase utility was written by Jouni Malinen 〈firstname.lastname@example.org〉.
