    Decrypting Password of the underlying JAAS implementation of

    Rahul Newbie

      Hi,
      We have our own implementation of LoginModule and CallbackHandler interfaces as Login Provider.

      We have those working through JBoss in our web application.

      The password we get in the server component of LoginModule from our CallbackHandler implementation is encrypted. Can we decrypt the password received from the underlying JAAS implementation of JBoss and get the original password? Can someone please direct me to the source of JBoss (encryption/decryption)algorithm that i can access to explore as if this can be done?

      Thank you in advance for any help.
      Regards,

          Hi,
          Can we suppress the encryption of password done by JBoss when it send the paswword over the wire?? Can somebody please provide me more insight into it..I can disable JAAS totally by commenting the SecurityAttibuteName in JBoss-service.xml but all i want to do is disable the encryption of password while still continue our implementation of LoginModule and CallbackHandler.

          Thank you in advance
