NIS backend doesn't support MD5 passwords
Review Request #647 — Created Nov. 28, 2008 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
The current NIS login code only supports DES passwords. This change adds support for MD5 passwords. (Our NIS server automatically uses MD5 once a password reaches a certain length..)
OK - I made the suggested changes. For 9/10 of our users the original unmodified code works fine. The tenth user had a long password, so our NIS server uses an MD5 password. The modified code now works for all 10 users, so I don't think this change breaks any existing uses. Also, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypt_(Unix) only an MD5 password will use a prefix of $1$.
