I'm able to bind the LDAP connection using java program and able to search the user DN and get the userPassword attribute. I'm getting encrypted password. My question is what is the encryption algorithm should I use to convert my plain text password to compare with LDAP password attribute?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
