Oracle does not encrypt the password. It creates a hash. When you log in it hashes what you supply as a password and compares that with what is stored. Why do you need to know the hash algorithum for Oracle? There are plenty of good ones publicaly available. Jim Received on Wed Apr 09 2008 - 05:41:56 CDT
