jiveUser password decryption

Hi,

I ve checked and know that this topic has been posted earlier. Howerver i’m looking into the answer of how to decrypt to password (not using the user plugin).

There seems to have more things than just using blowfish algorithm.

Has any one got details on that?

it’s best to have the format of the encrypted string stored in db. and from that how to get back the original plain password.

Many thanks

is it really stored itself?

isn’t it just a hashed version of the password?

is it really stored itself?

yes, I think to be compatible with deprecated XEP-0078.

If it helps, encryption is done by Blowfish class.

To get the plain test password you can use this:

AuthFactory.getAuthProvider().getPassword(“myUser”);
