crypto library in openssl
I come across a problem in using crypto library in OpenSSL.
We are using EVP_DecryptInit(), EVP_DecryptUpdate(), and EVP_DecryptFinal()=
to do the decryption of the user's password after the user logs in. Howeve=
r, I just found when the user's password is "$elkins02", the decrypted stri=
ng will be empty one (whose strlen() =3D=3D 0).
I have changed the user's password to "$dlkins02", "$flkins02", and "$Elkin=
s02", and all of them can be decypted correctly. So I suspect crypto librar=
y can't handle the substring "$e" in password. But another password "$eFair=
123" can be decrypted correctly. I am really at a loss what combination wil=
l cause the crypto library unable to decrypt password.
Anyone has spotted the problem before? We are using OpenSSL 0.9.7a.
Any suggestion is welcome,
