Re: SSHA Encryption

Hi all.

I have LDAP records with their userPassword field encrypted with SSHA. When I do a ldapsearch, I receive something like this:


But when I do a ldapmodify, delete the old password and add the new, i.e.:

add: userpassword
userpassword: 828f656

I change the password, but it doesn't encrypt it and the next ldapsearch that I do shows this field in plain text.

That is the way ldapmodify works. Use ldappasswd to change passwords.
