PCQuest - - FINALISTS -

The project of­fers self-ser­vice pass­word man­age­ment and sup­ports chal­lenge-re­spon­se­based authentication. The prod­uct al­lows users on a Win­dows Ac­tive Direc­tory based net­work to do a self ser­vice to re­set pass­words they’ve for­got­ten. They can do it with­out rais­ing a help desk ticket. This self ser­vice fea­ture in­creases user pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duces load on the IT Helpdesk. The prod­uct sup­ports XP and WIN 7 desk­top OS and WIN 2003 Server and above on the OS side. The soft­ware also states to be mak­ing use of LDAP via the LDS API in­ter­face found in Ac­tive Direc­tory. The pass­word man­age­ment mod­ule to­day sup­ports Pass­word Self Ser­vice for Ac­tive Direc­tory, Web Based front-end, User ID and Pass­word authentication, Chal­lenge/Re­sponse Ques­tions, and For­got pass­word. When asked about checks for weak pass­words when users se­lect a new pass­word, Pri­tish De­sai said that the soft­ware only works with or­ga­ni­za­tional poli­cies and rules that al­ready ex­ist. No ad­di­tional checks are per­formed.

Over­all, the prod­uct is very easy to use and solves one of the most com­mon prob­lems faced by most or­ga­ni­za­tions. It also helps with reg­u­la­tory com­pli­ance.
