2.3.6.3 Password Verifier Generation

Office

The password verifier uses a BinaryRC4EncryptionHeader structure, as specified in section 2.3.6.1. The password verifier Salt field MUST be populated with the salt created during password key generation, as specified in section 2.3.6.2. An additional 16-byte verifier is then hashed by using the MD5 hashing algorithm and encrypted by using the key generated in section 2.3.6.2, with a block number of 0x00000000.

The RC4 decryption stream (1) MUST NOT be reset between decrypting EncryptedVerifier and EncryptedVerifierHash.
