All of the BSDs install with several encryption algorithms, including the Blowfish algorithm. Blowfish was designed to be a fast, unpatented, and license-free alternative to other encryption algorithms. It is also considered to be a strong encryption algorithm, and at this time, no successful attacks against Blowfish are known.
BSD systems can be configured to use Blowfish hashes in the password databases. On a FreeBSD system, Blowfish hashes are enabled in login.conf(5); on NetBSD and OpenBSD, Blowfish hashes are enabled in passwd.conf(5).
