I've built a Samba PDC using the instructions at
have had great success using it in an enterprise setting.

As a part of a compliance audit I need to articulate clearly the password
encryption mechanism of my domain controller.  Is there reference
documentation on how user passwords are stored in a PDC configuration?
(Note: I used the term 'stored' but am assuming some type of salting,
hashing, etc. mechanism is actually used.)
