This modification allows administrators to designate forum passwords, which users must enter in order to view or use the features in that forum.
Forum passwords are hashed using sha512 and 12 characters of salt. The password uses a cookie so you need only enter it once, and the cookie uses a 64 character hashed random string along with the password, which ensures each time a user "logs in" with that forum password, the actual password cannot be cracked very easily.
You must have sha512 enabled on your server. If you are unsure, you will be given a message when running install_mod.php if you don't support it.
