In the event that the Hitachi ID Password Manager administrator forgets his own application password into Password Manager, Password Manager comes with the ADM_SET utility that allows a user with an administrative console login on the Password Manager server to reset the Password Manager application administrator password. This program can also be used to unlock/enable a superuser ID. ADM_SET is only accessible from an administrative command prompt on the Password Manager server.
Password Manager normally stores security questions, used to authenticate users who forget their passwords, in its internal database. The questions and answers are encrypted using 256-bit AES using a secret key. Alternatively, Password Manager can be tied to an external repository (e.g., LDAP, AD, Oracle, etc.) where it reads and writes encrypted or hashed security question data and possibly login IDs.
There are three options to support custom reports in Password Manager:
Custom reports added to the system in this way have all the same features as built-in reports: they can be scheduled, they can deliver output via e-mail or filesystem, they can drive automated requests, they can generate HTML, CSV or PDF output, etc.
