I don't understand! Where is encryption in the entire deal?

Wait... are you saying that you are trying to encrypt the password in in
setPassword() before setString() & are getting same result when encrypting
different words?

Thanks for your answer.

I don't want the algorithm but the class which stores the pass in the
xml file and the class which auth the user when he wants to modify data,
to add an algorithm.I've tried with the class
org.w3c.jigsaw.auth.AuthUser.java but without success . I thought it can
be :

 /**
     * Get the user password.
     */

    public String getPassword() {
	return (String) getValue(ATTR_PASSWORD, null) ;
    }

    /**
     * Set a new password for this user.
     * @param passwd The new user's password.
     */

    public void setPassword(String passwd) {
	setString(ATTR_PASSWORD, passwd);
    }

but if I change passwd in setPassword()  before the setString, there is
no change...

Thanks for your interest.
