We need a FIPS-validated SHA512 for password storage. The pw-sha2
provides SHA512 but isn't FIPS-validated. I see that I can use openssl or
moznss in FIPS mode to get TLS, but I don't see how to get to either of those
library's crypto functions from openldap. Is it possible?
I don't know what you wnat to do, but user's passwords will be significantly
weaker than SHA-1 I guess. The only thing is that some algorithms use more random bits for
the salt, so the new security actually comes from mor salt, not from longer hashes. Still
common passwords (from a dictionary) are problematic...
Like this (both passwords are identical):
