Simple question for y'all as i'm having some trouble identifying the hash type of this from a http digest file that I have setup for rutorrent on a apache2 server.

Here's an example of what it looks like:


The first two are in plain text while the password is entirely hashed...and not knowing what kind of hashing was used on this, I did some research but haven't found any concrete answers as to what this is. Seeing it's in the form of a HA1 (Part of the process of Auth Digest), that's my only clue as to what it is...but i'm unaware of what kind of hash the password is.

I used john-the-ripper to determine and see what kind of hash-type it is but that didn't work out.

This hash was generated by rutorrent (I believe) and is placed in the file named "htpasswd" from "/etc/apache2". Maybe some of y'all might know what it may be? Please do help me if you can...I'm stuck on figuring out what this could be heh.

  • To see how secure and strong this hash-type is as I learned a variety of different hash-types, how strong they are against cracking and more. With this one, I never seen such a hash-type before until now and thought someone on here might know what it is. – Hash-Wonderer Aug 19 '15 at 0:29
  • So about that link (thanks for helping btw), I already know what encryption that is as it's the apache2 "$apr1" but the one i'm asking about is different and I've already given an example of what it looks like. It's in this format: username:realm:hashed-password Both username and realm are in plain-text, but for some reason the password is hashed in some MD5 encryption and I believe it's created by rutorrent. If you want, I can send you an actual sample privately (for security reasons) of what it looks like. Anyways thanks for helping, if anyone knows what this could be...please reply! – Hash-Wonderer Aug 23 '15 at 10:02
