Re: password exop and encrypted passwords
my understanding of LDAP is that it just _stores_ data. it shouldn't
change the values in any form. may be that other implementations do
something like "crypt" or whatever, (e.g. oracle-ldap (oid) does) but

I'd like to use the new password exop, but I'd also like to store my
passwords encrypted. I'm using PADL's pam_ldap and when I change my
passwords using the password exop, they are stored in plaintext. I'd like
them to be stored encrypted.
My question is this: where is the task of encrypting the new password?
Should pam_ldap encrypt the new password before doing the exop (which I
*think* would work, correct me if I'm wrong), or should the LDAP server
encrypt it (which is how I understand iPlanet's server does it)?
