Supported User Interfaces - Hitachi ID Password Manager
Hitachi ID Password Manager supports several user interface mechanisms:
- Transparent password synchronization is initiated from a native
password change on a variety of existing systems, including
Windows server or Active Directory (32-bit, 64-bit), Sun LDAP, IBM LDAP,
Oracle Internet Directory, Unix (various), z/OS and iSeries (AS/400).
- Password Manager can invite users to enroll and notify users of
events relating to their profiles, by sending e-mails, by
opening a web browser from a network login script or by
sending Windows popup messages to users who have signed into
- Users can manage their passwords and authentication profiles
using any web browser (desktop, smart phone, tablet, etc.), using a
web portal. The web portal is compatible
with reverse web proxies and can be load balanced across multiple,
replicated Password Manager servers.
Users who forget their passwords can dial an IVR system with any
telephone and initiate a password reset. Authentication is typically
either with touch-tone input of answers to security questions, whose
answers are numeric, or by prompting the user to speak the answer to
a security question and performing a biometric voiceprint match.
The call flow in an existing IVR system can be extended to
handle this type of self-service, integrating with Password Manager via its
API to effect password or PIN resets. Alternately, relevant calls
can be rerouted to Hitachi ID Telephone Password Manager, which can handle the entire call flow
- Users who forget their network login password can launch a
kiosk-mode web browser from the desktop login screen. This
can be done using multiple methods:
