\fIlppasswd\fR adds, changes, or deletes passwords in the CUPS digest
password file, \fIpasswd.md5\fR. When run by a normal user, \fIlppasswd\fR
will prompt for the old and new passwords. When run by the super-user,
\fIlppasswd\fR can add new accounts (\fI-a username\fR), change existing
accounts (\fIusername\fR), or delete accounts (\fI-x username\fR) 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
(\fIlp(1)\fR, \fIlpr(1)\fR, etc.)
The \fI-g\fR option specifies a group other than the system group - "sys",
"system", or "root", depending on the operating system.
The \fIlppasswd\fR 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
lp(1), lpr(1),
