Update: also the "base64" utility can be used:
Code:
#echo 'somepassword' | base64

This utility needs to be installed separately on FreeBSD/Debian.

To encode a string into base64, echo and openssl system utilities can be used:
Code:
# echo -n 'somepassword' | openssl enc -base64
c29tZXBhc3N3b3Jk


The -n switch to echo is used to supress echoing a new line character. For example, below is a difference between base64 encoded string that doesn't contain newline and on that does:
Code:
# echo -n 'somepassword' | openssl enc -base64
c29tZXBhc3N3b3Jk
# echo 'somepassword' | openssl enc -base64
c29tZXBhc3N3b3JkCg==
