Question:

Is it possible to retrieve the information in the Password Data for a user (refers to Password Data field in corporate store directory.xml)?

Answer:

Out-of-the-box, the Identity Manager API cannot be used to access and decrypt this field. If you have integrated Siteminder with Identity Manager and are using Siteminder for password services, then you can take advantage of the SM DMS API which has a SmDmsUserPWState class which has methods available for accessing and decrypting the PasswordData field.
