Yeah, it could be encrypted. 

I don't remember offhand if it is by default simple Unix crypt (in that
case the encrypted password has 13 characters), or it's MD5 digest. 

In any case, you can create the encrypted pwds with:

1) makepasswd --crypt
   makepasswd --crypt-md5

2) or help yourself with htpasswd/htpasswd2 and htdigest/htdigest2 
   that come with apache (htpasswd for crypt(), htdigest for MD5):

   htpasswd2 -c /tmp/temp test 
   htdigest2 -c /tmp/temp test test
