Newbie MD5 encryption question
Sorry for the newbie question...
I was trying to turn on MD5 encryption, which I assumed would automatically
encrypt the 'userPassword' attribute.
Based on an email from the list, I added the following line to the ldap.conf:
I didn't see this in the man page for ldap.conf, so I wasn't sure it was the
right thing to do.
I then restarted slapd.
I then added an entry with the same userPassword as an existing entry
... and compared them ..
I expected to see the userPassword entry be significantly different, but it
wasn't ( see sample below )...
# 0040400, extern_accts, apps, IOPS
sn: John W. Smith
uid: John W. Smith
# 0040499, extern_accts, apps, IOPS
sn: Jane D. Doe
uid: Jane D. Doe
I also saw the following snippet in a message... and wondered how they got the
rootpw to be encrypted in slapd.conf.
Snippets from slapd.conf:
# SSL / TLS Support
# cachesize 10000
If there are some resources I'm missing, or a good book I should get, please let
Thanks for the help,
