Description Rich Megginson 2005-06-09 23:34:44 UTC
MD5 is used in many applications for password hashing.  It can help in migrating
other data stores to Fedora DS if FDS supports this.

Coding done by David Irving <>, Fred Brittain, and Aaron Gagnon
Reviewed by Rich Megginson - minor changes to md5_pwd.c
Tested on RHEL3 with FDS post-7.1
Does not include the OpenLDAP migration script - that will be handled separately

Comment 3 Jenny Galipeau 2011-06-06 17:49:33 UTC
MD5 password storage support was added in DS 8.2 - there are automated tests for this feature
