General Information

This section provides general information and recommendations while running the Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 OS.

Recommended Adoption of SHA–256 and SHA–512 crypt Plug-ins for Password Encryption

An additional pair of crypt(3C) plug-ins, based on the SHA–256 and SHA–512 digest algorithms, has been available in the Oracle Solaris 10 OS since the Oracle Solaris 10 10/08 release. These plug-ins provide a crypt(3C) hash that uses FIPS 140-2 approved algorithms and discontinues using MD5–based hashes.

Adopt the SHA–256 or SHA–512 password hashing algorithms whenever all your systems in the LDAP domain are running at least the Oracle Solaris 10 10/08 release. These algorithms should not be used in an LDAP domain if your systems are running Oracle Solaris releases prior to the Oracle Solaris 10 10/08 release.

For information about how to change the password algorithm, see Changing the Password Algorithm (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
