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…

  1. Try Mobile auth-push. Just need your username and no password. My small demo. https://youtu.be/spuChyoJzzc

    Um, change your password at the end of the session?

    Well, my Windows configuration reminds me about an oncoming password change several days days befor due date. So I can plan the change in a rather comfortable time span, for example before the weekend or at least with day’s work ending.
