          Hi ellenore,

          please indicate what is your intention using these verifiers in your application.

          The values you have shown are the internally stored hash values (aka identifiers) used for database authentication,
          what you call SALT is the 10G identifier from USER$.PASSWORD and the new 11G hash value is the sha-1 from
          the user$.spare4. Actually the sha-1 hash is salted and the 10g verifier is only 'salted' with the username, as it
          is a hash based on the USERNAME||PASSWORD .

          Please refer to note 429465.1 11g R1 New Feature : Case Sensitive Passwords and Strong User Authentication
