Wrong Bcrypt version, 2a expected

Hi,

(I think this qualifies as a bug, but it may also be a feature request.)

I am trying to use a Laravel website as AuthProvider. Laravel uses bcrypt. I added the following to openfire.xml:

com.mysql.jdbc.Driver

jdbc:mysql://10.89.10.20:3306/mydb?user=openfire&password =xxxxxxxx

org.jivesoftware.openfire.auth.JDBCAuthProvider

SELECT password FROM person WHERE username=? AND deleted_at IS NULL

bcrypt

Example record from my table:

mysql> select id, name, username, password, email from person where username = ‘admin’;

±—±--------------±---------±---------------------------------------------- ---------------±-----------------+

| id | name | username | password | email |

±—±--------------±---------±---------------------------------------------- ---------------±-----------------+

| 5 | Administrator | admin | $2y$10$8ZHPKFcfo2g6./.9QF.lj.mQ8ONVrEp1vpHa3vsGylpUX9BtXgnGe | admin@example.com |

±—±--------------±---------±---------------------------------------------- ---------------±-----------------+

1 row in set (0.00 sec)

(by the way, the custom database integration documentation does not mention bcrypt as an option)

When I try to login, openfire returns the following error:

Exception:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Wrong Bcrypt version, 2a expected.

I found the difference between 2y and 2a, and I changed the query to:

SELECT CONCAT(’$2a$’, SUBSTRING(password FROM 5)) FROM person WHERE username=? AND deleted_at IS NULL

and now it works.

So I think now this became a feature request to:

  • integrate this so this query would not be needed

  • add this to the custom database integration document.

Thanks.
