SNMPv3 - Adding a user with an encrypted password (MD5 hash)

Unanswered Question

When adding an SNMPv3 user to an IOS router, you can specify "either a plain-text password or a localized message digest 5 (MD5) digest". Here's an example of a command that uses a digest:

Router(config)# snmp-server user abcd public v3 encrypted auth md5 00:11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88:99:AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

(this example is from Cisco documentation)

My question is - how can you generate the MD5 hash (assuming you know the password and the engineID)?

I have this problem too.
