Overview#AuthPasswordSyntax is an LDAPSyntaxes defined in RFC 3112 with an OID of 126.96.36.199.4.1.4188.8.131.52
Values of this syntax are encoded according to:
authPasswordValue = w scheme s authInfo s authValue w scheme = %x30-39 / %x41-5A / %x2D-2F / %x5F ; 0-9, A-Z, "-", ".", "/", or "_" authInfo = schemeSpecificValue authValue = schemeSpecificValue schemeSpecificValue = *( %x21-23 / %x25-7E ) ; printable ASCII less "$" and " " s = w SEP w w = *SP SEP = %x24 ; "$" SP = %x20 ; " " (space)
The authValue field is often a base64 encoded value derived from a user's password(s). Values of this attribute are Case-sensitive.
Transfer of values of this syntax is strongly discouraged where the underlying transport service cannot guarantee confidentiality and may result in disclosure of the values to unauthorized parties.
