I need some accurate information about how Windows 8 and Windows 10 perform hashing user account passwords.
I know that they are stored in SAM file and NTLMv2 algorithm is used. But while using some utilities like
pwdump I don’t understand for example why Windows 8 output looks something like:
<account name>: id NO PASSWORD: ***** :<hash>
and for Windows 10:
<account name>: id <hash1> :<hash2>.
Is there some good and accurate explonation of how these systemes hash user account passwords?
