    LdapLoginModule with hashAlgorithm

    aw1973 Newbie


      I have configured an LDAPLoginModule for my IPlanet LDAP server. There's no problem with that.

      Now I want to secure the authentication by adding a hashAlgorithm parameter to the LoginModule so that the password isn't send in clear text over the network.

      In my iPlanet5.1 I have configured SHA for hashing the password, iPlanet description says that SHA-1 is used in this case.

      So I added the hashAlgorithm option with value "SHA-1" to my LDAPLoginModule in the login-config. The value "SHA-1" seems to be recognized because I get an appropriate error when using a non-valid value.

      But now the login fails (see error below). I tried to change the hashEncoding but that also didn't work.

      Any ideas?


      BTW, I use jboss-3.0.4 / tomcat-4.1.12
