Community - Password salt on CreateUser


Hi there,

we use EPiServer CMS and Community 7.5 and we need to exports some users information.

In this table we have also a binPassword field (in HEX like '0x487C1D......') that contains the users password but I noticed that if I create two users with the same password, the results into binPassword on DB are different.

We use the CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity to creation and authentication.

Can you tell me if there is a password salt somewhere and what kind of encryption algorithm is used?

Thank you!
