An open-source Bash script-set for creating a BASIC password prompt, inspired by this request "http://askubuntu.com/questions/758185/how-to-validate-a-users-password-with-a-shell-script" (presently unanswered). This probably isn't very secure, but for situations where only minimal security is needed it is viable. Also useful as a captcha to help enforce human presence requirements in order to run your scripts/tools. You can prompt the user for their password, or you can specify one (which you can optionally display to the user for a captcha-like function).
A copy of the license, installation instructions, and a list of dependencies is included in the download.
