Hi Bahan,

the user passwords stored in LDAP follow the password policy configured in the LDAP server, which defines password syntax requirements as well as the password encryption algorithm. You can find more information in RedHat Directory Server Administration Guide, in the section Managing the Password Policy:

By default, the password storage scheme is SSHA. This means that when a user entry is created with a password, the directory server encrypts the password using SSHA before actually storing it in the user entry.

I hope this answers your question,

Hello !

I'm running ipa and I have a question related to the password
stored in the ldap.

I was wondering if the users password were natively encrypted ?
if yes, do you know by which mechanism ?

Thank you in advance for your help.
