How is this going to work with proxy authorization ?
the ldapdb auxprop plugin in postfix doesn't work with hash passwords. Should I go back to using saslauthd ?

Hi List,

I'm working on a setup where postfix and cyrus-imap do proxy
authorization against openldap (my setup is here http://1nw.eu/!cD [1] ). I love this solution, it's a lot more elegant that using saslauthd. But I'm concerned about passwords stored in cleartext, as required by

I know of the many ways to protect the data stored in openldap (file
system encryption, etc...), but if somebody gets a root access,
passwords will be disclosed, and I want to prevent that.

My question is: Is there a way to use hashed passwords with sasl and
proxy authorization ?
