Re: How can I get OpenLDAP to hash passwords as crypt?
As it stands now every client that
modifies userpasswords in the directory will need a compatible crypt()
function call. Plus with a single crypt function the results of the
hash would be consistant.
There is actually an RFC for LDAP password-changing which defines a
mechanism call EXOP. By now, most LDAP APIs should have implemented
EXOP. ldappasswd, for example, is just a command-line wrapper around
OpenLDAP's C implementation of an EXOP API.
