    Extracting ObjectSID from LDAP query

    User Since V1.5 Level 1
      I'm using CFLDAP in CF MX7 to retrieve sAMAccountName, DisplayName and ObjectSID from a Windows 2003 server. I'm logging in as Administrator to do this.

      ObjectSIDs get returned as a binary values, which I am able to convert to strings via CharsetEncode with encoding us-ascii. But these strings look nothing like what I'm expecting: strings of the form S-x-yyyy-......

      Is this because the binary values getting returned are encrypted? If so, is there any way to decrypt them? If not, does anyone know how else I can retrieve the actual ObjectSID values in the form S-x-yyyy-.....?
