WebSphere Issues


Decode/Decrypt WebSphere J2C authentication passwords using WebSphere PasswordDecoder utility

Filed under: WAS, WebSphere Portal — Ishtiaque @ 6:43 pm

1. Search the tag “<authDataEntries” and corresponding XORed encoded password in the file /wp_profile/config/cells/node1/security.xml

2. Change directory to C:/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/lib

3. Run the command:

C:/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/java/bin/java -cp ffdc.jar;bootstrap.jar;emf.jar;securityimpl.jar;iwsorb.jar;ras.jar;wsexception.jar com.ibm.ws.security.util.PasswordDecoder {xor}LDo8LTor

Note: The above cmd must be run in WAS 6 and it can encode only passwords which are encoded by XOR.
