You could use RADIUS, but then your server wouldn't be standalone.

It's a base64 encoded, hexadecimal MD5 hash of the ISO-8859-1 encoded 
password, with '==' appended at the end of the base64 result.  See the 
User::passwordHash() and 
convert_nocat_password_hash() fucntions.

Note that the NoCad passwd importer hasn't been used in a while.  It may have 
minor bugs.
