Hashed Entries


Can I please ask the relevance of the results of my ldapsearch command:

ldapsearch -x -LLL -b dc=name=name

dn: dc=name,dc=name
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organization
dc:: ZGxpYi1tb25pZHAg
o:: ZGxpYi1tb25pZHAg

dn: ou=Users,dc=name,dc=name
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Users

dn: cn=Bob Jones,ou=Users,dc=name,dc=name
cn: Bob Jones
sn: Jones
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: eduPerson
eduPersonAffiliation: staff
userPassword:: cGFzc3dvcmQg
uid: bjones

When I log in as bjones using the correct password the 'username or password is not valid'.

What is the relevance of the entries such as the userPassword:: which now appear with two colons?

I have added more test users and on their entry the uid entry also has the double colons with a hashed entry following.

Thanks in advance.
