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).

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

> wpa_passphrase MySSID
# reading passphrase from stdin

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).
