    How can I modify the Database LoginModule to use encoded Pas

    Joerg Newbie

      Hello, I'm using JAAS based security on JBoss2.4.3_Tomcat3.2.3.
      Authentification works via the Database LoginModule which looks
      for authentification in the two database tables Roles and Principals.
      Now I want to store the passwords in a encoded form because it is to
      dangerous for us to store them in a plain readable form.
      But then the LoginModule needs to encode the passwords the user enters
      before comparing it with the database entry.

      Is there an easy way to do this or do I need to change some Login classes
      or write them new. If yes, which classes are these and where do I get the
      sources of the momentary classes?

      Thanks in advance,

      Joerg
