How can I encrypt a password for my mntner using MD5-PW?

We do not recommend that you use MD5 passwords for regular usage. Please see our security recommendations page for more information. If you still need to use MD5 passwords, such as for authenticating against the RIPE Database API over HTTPS, please visit the Authorisation Password Generator page and follow the instructions.
