I am using the latest version of Openfire–downloaded yesterday.
I’'m running the server on MS Windows, with SQL Express 2005 server.
I noticed in the jiveUser table, there is a column for password, and a column for encrypted password.
I am building a member profile system in Visual Basic flavored ASP.NET. I want the member profiles to use the same login as the Openfire Server. I want to disable the registration feature on the server, and have users register via the site, which creates a login that works for both openfire and the user profile system.
I do not want to use http in order to pass this information to Openfire. It is an unsecure method of creating users. There’'s no sense in having a seperate user table for my website.
My reading tells me that the encryption for the passwords are based on blowfish encryption. Is there a wiki or documentation anywhere on how to do this?
I know there is a config file that would allow you to use another database. I do not want to use that. I want to have a registration form I can develop that will create users in the jiveUser table without having to store the information in two places or pass information in unsecure fashion over http: What are my options?
