      Description

      Sqoop provides a few different options when decrypting password files. Unfortunately, key derivation varies from command line tool (and most command line tools are not complete (See openssl bug (https://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/enc.html) on key derivation + iterations)), so it makes sense to provide a tool that does the following:

      1. Ask for a passphrase
      2. Ask for salt or optionally generate salt
      3. Optionally ask for an encryption algorithm
      4. Optionally ask for iterations in key derivation
      5. Encrypt a file using Sqoop's internal key derivation function (which is actually PBKDF2 With HMAC-SHA1).
      6. Return generated salt
