Hello @SrihariRuttala-4164

The users' password is stored in the Active Directory on a user object in the unicodePwd attribute. This attribute can be written under restricted conditions, but it cannot be read due to security reasons. The attribute can only be modified; it cannot be added on object creation or queried by a search. In order to modify this attribute, the client must have a 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection to the server. For this connection to be possible, the server must possess a server certificate for a 128-bit RSA connection, the client must trust the certificate authority (CA) that generated the server certificate, and both client and server must be capable of 128-bit encryption.
