  • A user signs into his Windows PC with a primary password.
  • A user signs into an application with the same password.
  • HiLM detects that the two passwords are the same.
  • The user changes his Windows password.
  • The HiPM detects the password change and sets the same password on the application.
  • The user signs out and reauthenticates to Windows.
  • The user launches the same application.
  • HiLM injects the current application credentials automatically.

Key concepts:

  • Single sign-on to both web and client-based applications.
  • No manually developed application launching scripts.
  • No password wallet to populate or maintain.
  • Minimal software footprint on the Windows PC.
