passpass - password passer
This is a wrapper around tools like SSH that ask for passwords directly from your ptty instead of stdin. You can use this to pass passwords on the command-line exactly the way you're not supposed to. If you don't know why this is a bad idea then you probably shouldn't be using this tool.
#!/usr/bin/env python ''' SYNOPSIS passpass COMMAND # read password from stdin passpass -p PASSWORD COMMAND # use -p option to set password. DESCRIPTION This is the infamous password passer, scourge of security. Use it wisely. Use it rarely. Do not use it at all. This will read a password from stdin and provide it when running the given command, or the -p option may be used to pass a password on the command-line. This can be used to circumvent applications that read directly from a pty. Pretty much the only applications people care to use this for are ssh, scp, and rsync, but there could be other use cases that this tools could be used for. EXAMPLES The following are some examples of how to use this script. # echo "bad_password" | passpass ssh firstname.lastname@example.org hostname -f www.example.com # passpass -p bad_password ssh email@example.com hostname -f www.example.com EXIT STATUS This exits with status 0 on success and 1 otherwise. This exits with a status greater than 1 if there was an unexpected run-time error.
