[suse-security] blowfish for hashing algorithm



anyway..i was going through the pam documentation and i came accross
something.
I changed the default hashing algorithm from md5 to blowfish
I did this by editing the files pam_unix2.conf and pam_pwcheck.conf in
/etc/security
it seems that it worked...once i changed my password using the passwd
command the appropriate field in /etc/shadow
became $2a$ instead of $1$ which signifies md5 .
Has anyone else tried that?Any similar experiences?

thanks in advance ..........
