These kind of generic questions are better suited for
freebsd-questions@, i doubt.

Anyway, from man 8 wpa_passphrase:

The wpa_passphrase utility is a small program for generating a 256-bit
pre-shared WPA key from an ASCII passphrase and a given SSID. The output
is formatted for inclusion in wpa_supplicant.conf(5).

Example:
I have an access point with ssid MySSID and passphrase MyS3cr3t:

> wpa_passphrase MySSID
# reading passphrase from stdin
MyS3cr3t
network=3D{
        ssid=3D"MySSID"
        #psk=3D"MyS3cr3t"
       psk=3Dc0964594a3000e7605ef17097f7d939a44e516f05b99806fd862db5934c2=
e4d4
}

The output is ready to be included in your wpa_supplicant.conf file
(better removing the commented line where the password is in clear text).=
