Transparent password synchronization


Play movie

Content:

  • Illustrate the flow of a new password from a change initiated on Windows via Ctrl-Alt-Del, through an AD DC, to HiPM and finally to another application.

Key concepts:

  • Reducing the number of passwords users must remember.
  • Password synchronization without exposing a user to a new UI.
  • Intercepting password changes on AD DCs.
  • Propagating new passwords to multiple systems and applications.

Transparent password synchronization: realistic scenario with load balancing and feedback loops


Play movie

Content:

  • Illustrate the flow of a new password during password synchronization.
  • Highlight interactions with load balancers, multiple HiPM systems and multiple trigger systems.
  • Show how HiPM prevents feedback loops.

Key concepts:

  • Reducing the number of passwords users must remember.
  • Ensuring that password synchronization does not introduce feedback loops on the network.
  • Illustrate the advanced architecture to properly scale up a password synchronization system.
