Kopano password encryption key
do you know where can be found the key and IV used to encrypt user’s passwords in the Kopano DB ?
thx in advance for your answers.

There is no key and no (explicit) IV, because the common practice is that passwords are not symmetrically encrypted, but hashed.
Thank you for your answer jengelh.
The idea here is to authenticate using DB backend
So then how can I compare the entered password with the hashed value in the DB ? Is there a way to to that ?
thanks for your feedback.
I’ll do it this way then.

DBBase.cpp:DBPlugin::CreateMD5Hash. There is however no guarantee that the method remains the same forever. pam_mapi (external project) has a proper implementation that uses server logon for validation.
