The salted secure hash algorithm (SSHA) is an improved version of the SHA algorithm that randomizes the hash and decreases the likelihood that the hash can be unencrypted.

You must generate an SSHA encrypted password. You can use the same password for all demo user accounts. If you need a different password for each user, encrypt each password one at a time.


Open the Connector virtual machine.


Run the slappasswd command.


Type and verify a new password.

The SSHA encrypted value appears.


Add this value to the ldif file to set the user password.

Add groups and assign users to the Demo User Store.
