If you create SQL Logins based on Windows accounts SQL Server does not store them at all, the Login process then is delegated to Active Directory and based on OS Login, which is done via NTLMv2 challenge-response authentication protocol.

For SQL Server users, the user data is found in master data and via LOGINPROPERTY():
SELECT name, LOGINPROPERTY(name,'PasswordHashAlgorithm')
FROM syslogins
WHERE password IS NOT NULL
ORDER BY name

Open in new window


0 means a SQL7.0, 1 and 2 are SHA-1 and SHA-2 respectively.
