Educause networking,


I am curious as to what solutions many of you use for password management.  In particular we are looking for something central that might enforce password changes and compliances relating to AD, ldap, and google (api's).


1. Do you require users to change passwords and if so, how often?


2. Do you have a system that allows users to obtain a new password automatically if they forget their password or do you simply require them to contact your IT staff?


3. Is your solution commercial or in house produced?  If commercial, what solution are you using?


4. How many services do you require a password change for (i.e. AD, ldap, Google, etc)?
