RealOnlySQLAuthenticator And Encrypting Passwords

(Doc ID 1458800.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Authentication fails when passwords are hashed using SHA-1 and stored in the DB, and the Authentictor selected is ReadOnloySqlAuthenticator.

Changes

While configuring ReadOnlySQLAuthenticator, Plaintext Passwords Enabled is "UNCHECKED" under the provider specific tab of the ReadOnlySqlAuthenticator. No changes, at the DBMS side we are storing the hashed password using SHA-1 algorithm.
