LONG Passwords for 11i-v2 (11.23)

[ Edited ]

v3 has SMSE built in. The LongPassword11i3 (add-on) increases the maximum password length from 8 to 255 characters on HP-UX 11i v3 systems in shadow mode.


For v2, SMSE is an add-on.


What about shadow mode LONG Passwords (ie: >8) for v2? Is that part of the SMSE product  OR  is it handled some other way  OR  is it just not available for v2?

As far as I know, long passwords in shadow mode are not available for 11iv2 at all.


Passwords with more than 8 characters will require a different password hashing (irreversible "encryption") algorithm.
