The password management capabilities within OpenIAM allow us to manage:
- Password composition and life cycle of a password through policies.
- Synchronization of the password with other systems.
By synchronizing passwords, end users have to remember fewer passwords, which results in the following benefits:
- Improved security as users are less likely to write down their passwords. Further, all passwords will still be governed by the security policies that are defined.
- Improved productivity and reduced cost, which will result from having to make fewer calls to the help desk.
By combining password policies and synchronization, passwords can be managed in a consistent way across systems within the enterprise.
Passwords in OpenIAM can be changed from a number of locations including the Self Service application.
In addition to these capabilities, the OpenIAM Identity Manager also contains batch capability that allows the system of events such as a password expiring in "x" days.
