Windows / Active Directory Integration - Hitachi ID Password Manager

Triggering Password Synchronization

Native password changes made on Windows servers and domain controllers can trigger transparent password synchronization.

Updating Cached Credentials

After a password change with a web-based password management system, the cached credentials on a user's workstation will be different than the user's new domain password:

If a user signs off and back-on after a web-based password change, the Windows cache is refreshed and the intruder lockout problem described above is averted. This approach is not user friendly, however.

To eliminate this problem without forcing users to sign off and back on, Hitachi ID Password Manager includes an ActiveX component that can silently update the user's Windows password cache after a web-based password change.

The cache-updating ActiveX component works on Windows XP, Vista and 7 workstations.
