Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-738) Modular Crypt Format Salts are incorrectly displayed
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2011 06:28:10 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-738:

Can you explain how salts should be displayed? Do you mean they should be be prefixed with
"$x$"? In LDAP the passwords are prefixed with "{schema}" which is defined in RFC 2307

> CRYPT passwords embed multiple values into a single field, in particular the algorithm
and the salt used. This method is known as Modular Crypt Format 
> When given a userPassword field described using this system, the "show password details"
display on the value editor gets the salt wrong and fails to verify.
