Password Encryption

I am considering using RT to authenticate our techs to a little Perl
application that I have written. Since I would like to keep the number of
passwords for them down and we do not yet have an LDAP server, I thought I
would try to use RT. I am using mod_auth_mysql with Apache with
AuthMySQLMD5Passwords set to “On” and the auth isn’t working. If I put an
MD5 sum in a test database and test that, I can use mod_auth_mysql to
authenticate. When I use the password from RT however, the resulting hash
is different. Am I missing something?

Yes, you didn’t read FAQ.

It’s Base64 encoded MD5 hash.

So my guess then is that I won’t be able to do it - am I right?

With current code as I think no.
You can hack RT or auth_mod(perl part may be can be ok) that you’re
going to use.

As I recall someone post solution that he use to solve this task.

that was me, although it was for libapache-mod-auth-pgsql…

I could send you the code, and you could use that as a hacking guide…
