Password encryption in Quick'n Easy FTP server

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm writing a FTP automated server around Quick'n Easy FTP server, and, i would need to dynamically update the USERS.XML file via code.

 

But for that to work i would need to know what algorithm has been used to encrypt (or hash) the password.

 

I know it's not md5, :lol:

And I thought for a while it was something like :

 

CryptedletterN=(StringLenght$+letterN+N) for N=0 to (StringLenght$-1) , but it seems a bit more twisted.

 

I'd really appreciate if the developper could give me at least a hint.

Thanks in Advance

You may have to go to the developer's site and ask for that. I have no idea what algorithm he uses, and i also tried to find our a while back cause it was powerful and i needed something like that.

Thanks a lot,

I actually checked the boards there and found this :

The password encryption is not public available.

 

But there is an undocumented attribute in the PASSWORD tag that allows you to set an unencrypted password like this:

 

<PASSWORD encrypted="0">Password</PASSWORD>

 

The FTP server will not try to decrypt the password when encrypted="0" (be aware of the quotes!)

 

which helps me tremendously. I'm posting it here for reference if anyone has the same problem as me.
