By default users created in OUD have their password stored as Salted SHA-1 (SSHA-1). With one of these OUD users, we can successfully authenticate to an Oracle 10g/11g/12c database using a globally identified account.
However, for users with a stronger password storage scheme (like SHA-2 variants of SSHA-512 or SSHA-256), the following error is thrown on authentication
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
How to configure the database and OUD to allow for a stronger password storage scheme than SSHA-1?
