How does SQL Server encrypt the user's passwords in the syslogins table (SQL Server 2005) ?

We have a Java Middle Tier that needs to communicate to my sql server database. How is the authentication done ?

How can you check if the username/password combination is valid ?
Or how do u know username/(encrypted password) is valid ?

Thanks in advance...

To check if it is valid, you attempt to make a connection to the SQL Server using his/her credentials. If you get the Login Failed error message, then you know the combination is invalid.
