SOA/B2B application fails to authenticate users after upgrading from OID 10g to OID 11g (Doc ID 1545661.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

SOA/B2B application is using the OID as the security store and the passwords are stored by the application in an OID attribute called orclcsfpassword. In OID 10g the passwords are retrieved by the application in clear text (expected behavior) and the authentication is performed successfully however after upgrading to OID 11g the passwords are now retrieved in encrypted format, this is causing the application to fail to authenticate the users as it is expecting to retrieve the password in clear text.
