Password Synchronization Triggers

Transparent password synchronization can be triggered from native password changes on any of the following systems:

  • Windows 2000/2003/2008/2012 servers and Active Directory domains (password filter DLL on servers and/or DCs).
  • z/OS mainframes with RAC/F, ACF2 or TopSecret security products (security exit in the LPAR with the security products).
  • OS/400, iSeries servers.
  • Unix servers (passwd program wrapper binary or PAM).
  • Sun/Oracle and IBM LDAP servers (attribute change filter on the directory server).

Each of these triggers contacts the Password Manager server twice per password change, over an encrypted TCP/IP socket (shared key handshake, 256-bit AES encryption):

  • First connection: validate password quality, possibly reject the user's choice of a new password and block the triggering password change due to policy violation
  • Second connection: initiate transparent password synchronization
