Need help duplicating password
I am currently working on a project and have hit a brick wall.
I will try to keep this short... basically we have Coldfusion app that will be query'ing our LDAP server for a login page authentication. Since we can't decrypt the passwords stored we are going to encrypt the user-provided password and match the encrypted form to validate.
However, I can't seem to figure out how the system is encrypting things.
I found on an OpenLDAP mailing list that OpenLDAP just uses the system encryption.
The system is CentOS 4.7.
This is the output of /etc/sysconfig/authconfig:
While it says MD5, from what I can see it isn't just a normal md5 string (maybe has a salt added to it? If so, how do you get the salt?)
Maybe I'm completely on the wrong track, can anyone help?
The strings all start with "$1$" if that helps any.
Thank you so much!
