Issue #36 on hold

===== //(Imported from Google Code)//

It would be nice to support MacOS X's password hash format.

[[http://www.dribin.org/dave/blog/archives/2006/04/28/os_x_passwords_2/|http://www.dribin.org/dave/blog/archives/2006/04/28/os_x_passwords_2/]] contains a good walkthrough of it's history for OS X 10.0 - 10.4.

Things left to do:

  1. Find source of info for remaining OS X releases, figure out what things have changed.

  2. Work out the best interface for handling a complex multi-digest hash string like this.

  3. Given the complexity, need to gather a BUNCH of test vectors for known passwords (ascii and unicode), under various security configurations, to ensure the walkthrough above is actually accurate. This is currently the primary blocker for this issue.

    Since this issue hasn't been requested / bumped / needed by anyone (including me) in the last four years, putting it 'on hold' for now.; until future where there's need enough to pursue this issue.
