DS 7.2.0

Authentication Password Syntax

Values of this syntax hold encoded or hashed passwords.

The syntax follows this ABNF:

authPasswordValue = w scheme s authInfo s authValue w
scheme = %x30-39 / %x41-5A / %x2D-2F / %x5F
; 0-9, A-Z, "-", ".", "/", or "_"
authInfo = schemeSpecificValue
authValue = schemeSpecificValue
schemeSpecificValue = *( %x21-23 / %x25-7E )
; printable ASCII less "$" and " "
s = w SEP w
w = *SP
SEP = %x24 ; "$"
SP = %x20 ; " " (space)

The scheme describes the mechanism.

The authInfo is often base64-encoded salt.

The authValue is often a base64-encoded value derived from the password(s).
