----------------------------------------
The usercrypted password is created by:
echo YOUR_PASSWORD | mkpasswd -s
("mkpasswd" is from package "whois" in Debian or Ubuntu. Check your GNU/Linux to see which package provides this command if you are not using Debian or Ubuntu. Replace YOUR_PASSWORD with your plain text password, and remember do not put any " in the boot parameters of live-initramfs (while it's ok for those ocs_* boot parameters), i.e. do NOT use something like usercrypted="bkuQxLqLRuDW6").
If you prefer sha-256 instead of md5 method, you can generate the password like:
echo YOUR_PASSWD | mkpasswd -m sha-256 -s
Or sha-512:
echo YOUR_PASSWD | mkpasswd -m sha-512 -s
//NOTE// If you do not assign salt to mkpasswd, the encrypted password will not be the same every time you create it.
For more about usercrypted discussion, please check the here.

For more boot parameters, please refer to this doc.
