Reading LDAP User and MD5 Password with Java


I am trying to locate a Java class that will allow me to access a users name and their MD5 password. I have admin rights.

I want to get a list of all of my users plus their MD5 password.

I need this to produce a list for backup.

An LDAP authentication routine contain 2 binds. The 1st bind should be as a service account (better not to use the directory-manager account) which does the search for the user's DN. The 2nd one actually binds as the user with the password given, so you need not compare anything. The directory simply returns authentication success or failure (throws AuthenticationException).
