Doc Text:
Directory Server now supports the *PBKDF2_SHA256* password storage scheme To increase security, this update adds the 256-bit password-based key derivation function 2 (PBKDF2_SHA256) to the list of supported password-storage schemes in Directory Server. The scheme uses 30,000 iterations to apply the 256-bit secure hash algorithm (SHA256). Note that the network security service (NSS) database in Red Hat Enterprise Linux prior to version 7.4 does not support PBKDF2. Therefore, you cannot use this password scheme in a replication topology with previous Directory Server versions.
