I guess this may be relevant in a backward sort of way.......
I remember reading something about windows password encryption quite
awhile ago....maybe in Cnet that was basically saying it was much easier
to break than most  because it contained no random character sets in it.
So..... any UN/PW that was the same would appear the same everywhere.
Thinking of that article, I would assume the rest of the info would be
encrypted the same way. HTH

Subject: [windows2000] About SIDs

Hi list,

So, I noticed that if I look at all the SIDs of domains users in my
domain and convert them to a hex string, they are all 56 characters
long.  I also noticed that of all the users (about 1000), all of the
SIDs have the same first 48 characters.  It is only the last 8 that
differ from user to user.  Is this because the first 48 characters
represent some other information, like the domain or something, and it's
the last 8 characters that are unique for each user all in the same
domain?  All these SIDs are in the same domain.  Does anyone know?

Thanks,

Ray at work
