I love the idea of Single Sign-On. The fact that I can use a single set of credentials when I log on to my laptop, and then not have to keep entering passwords for subsequent actions, is in theory a great idea.
However there are four ‘great ideas’ that, when combined (as they so often are) lead to a big pain in my neck. Those are:
- Single Sign-On
- Password PINs
- Ticket-Checking Tickets (such as Kerberos, Active Directory, etc…)
- Periodic password changing
I know why we have to change our passwords, and I am glad to do it… but when you do, and especially when you are working remote, it leads to all sorts of headaches. Does anyone have a really good solution that will let me, in the middle of my session. change my password and continue working… without having to reset, refresh, log-off, re-enter?
I am open to ideas…
