On the subject of passwords, has anyone tried using the AIM logon process on
an ICQ server? I don't know the exact details, but it looks like it involves
the server sending a challenge string which the client combines with its
password and sends back as an MD5 digest. It certainly seems a lot more
secure than the ICQ logon.
If anyone is interested, I'm sure you can find the details in gaim. The
SNACs involved are 17/6, 17/7, 17/2 and 17/3. Most of the TLVs look the same
as those used by ICQ channel 1 packets.
