How to encrypt a password

To encrypt a password, type /mkpasswd into the status window of a network you are an ircop on. For example /mkpasswd sha1 test would return ** Authentication phrase (method=sha1, para=test) is: $8rvIvg3C$uL/QGEFj2p79Tv1GnruvEUnmDNE=. The section of that to copy and paste into the password box would be $8rvIvg3C$uL/QGEFj2p79Tv1GnruvEUnmDNE=.

Note: To use sha1 you must change the following option to "Yes" when compiling your IRCd

Cloak keys

You need to use a string with random lowercase (a-z), uppercase (A-Z) and digit characters. The string should be 5-100 characters long (10-20 is just fine)
So for example:

Key 1: uvEUnmEFj2p79Tv1Gnr
Key 2: GnruvEUnmEFj2p79Tv1
Key 3: ruvEUnmEFj2p7uvEUnm

These cloak keys must be the same on all servers on the networks or else bans won't work correctly.
