7 Problem: Too Many Passwords

Every login account has its own: Password complexity creates business problems:

• Password value. • User interface. • Strength rules. • Expiration date.

High call volume:

Users forget or lock out their passwords. This can be 30% of help desk workload. • Sticky notes:

Users write down their passwords and may leave them in public view.

Bad passwords:

Users choose simple, easily guessed passwords.

8 The HiPM Solution

Hitachi ID Password Manager addresses the problems that arise from password complexity:

• Cost savings from simplified password management, rapid deployment, low TCO and fast ROI. • Improved security from strong authentication, policy enforcement.

• Scalability to hundreds of thousands of users. • Flexibility to integrate with existing infrastructure.

9 Problem: Password Management Costs

End users: Lose productivity when they have trouble logging in.

Support analysts: Spend much of their time resolving password problem calls. Must be staffed for peak volume after holidays.


10 HiPM Cost Savings

Synchronization: Eliminates 60% to 90% of password problems.

Self-service reset: When adopted by 40% to 70% of users, diverts problem resolution away from the help desk.

Assisted reset: Shortens remaining password reset HD calls by 50% or more, to about 1 minute/call.

11 Problem: Password Security

Policy: Users prefer easily guessed passwords, write and share passwords. Authentication: Weak caller authentication prior to HD password resets.

Delegation: Support staff require too many administrative logins. Accountability: For support staff who perform resets.

Encryption: Passwords should not be sent or stored in the clear.

12 HiPM Security Benefits

Policy: Hitachi ID Password Manager can enforce over 50 password rules, on every system.

Synchronization: No need to write down multiple passwords.

Authentication: Users are identified before being allowed a HD password reset. Delegation: Support staff no longer require administrative credentials. Accountability: All password-related events logged.

18 Scalability and Fault-Tolerance

• Multiple, load-balanced Hitachi ID Password Manager servers: Active/active architecture.

• Data replication between nodes: Built-in, easy to configure.

WAN-friendly (high latency, low bandwidth, insecure channels). Reliable (multiple retry queues).

• Proxy servers resolve connection problems: Across firewalls.

Over slow, insecure network routes. • Large production deployments:

5M users.

130,000 managed systems. 12 load balanced IAM servers. 10,000 completed transactions/hour.

19 Password Synchronization

Problem Solution

• Users have too many passwords: On different systems, with different policies, expiring at different times.

• Complexity leads users to do bad things: Write down passwords ("sticky


Forget/lock out passwords and call the help desk.

Reuse old passwords.

• Password synchronization pushes password updates from one system to another:

Multiple physical passwords. Same value everywhere.

• Password synchronization allows users to: Remember a single password value. Manage it on a single schedule. Comply with a single password


20 Transparent Password Synchronization

Password synchronization is designed to help users maintain a single, strong password across multiple login IDs.

Transparent password synchronization leverages an existing user interface. • Users change their passwords natively on:

Active Directory. Unix servers. LDAP directories. OS400 / iSeries servers.

z/OS mainframes (RACF, CA-ACF2, CA-TopSecret).

• Hitachi ID Password Manager enforces a global policy, blocking weak passwords. • Approved passwords are synchronized to other accounts belonging to the same user.

22 Web Password Synchronization

Password synchronization is designed to help users maintain a single, strong password across multiple login IDs.

Web password synchronization exposes a new user interface.

• Access a Web-based password change screen using any browser. • Enter a trusted network login ID and password.

• Select a new password for one or all systems and accounts. • Review results from the password update on each system.

24 Prompting Users to Synchronize

Users do not volunteer to change their passwords.

• Hitachi ID Password Manager can identify users who should change their passwords either based on upcoming expiration on a target system, or based on the last HiPM update.

• Users are asked to change their passwords:

By e-mail, with an embedded URL to the HiPM server.

By a Web browser, automatically opened during the network login script.

25 Benefits of Password Synchronization

• Improved user service.

• Users have fewer password problems, so waste less time with login problems and call the help desk less frequently.

• New passwords meet global quality standards. • All passwords are changed regularly.

26 Self-Service Password Reset

Problem Solution

• Some users continue to forget passwords or trigger lockouts.

• These users still call the help desk. • High call volume is expensive.

• Self-service password reset enables users to authenticate themselves with something else (a token, biometric, personal questions, etc.) and reset their own password(s).

• Hitachi ID Password Manager SSPR allows these users to resolve their own problems:

This lowers help desk call volume. User service is available 24x7. Accessible via web browser, phone


27 Access from Login Prompt

Problem Solution

Users who forget their network password cannot launch a Web browser to access the self-service password reset application.

• Secure Kiosk Account (SKA): access to SSPR without client software ("guest" account).

• GINA service: access to SSPR from UI extension – no GINA DLL.

• Hitachi ID Phone Password Manager: turn-key telephone access to SSPR. • Temporary VPN: access to SSPR from

outside the corporate network.

28 Secure Kiosk Account (SKA)

Support locked out users without deploying client software. • User signs on with the login IDHELP

• No password is required to sign into the SKA. • The SKA account has a special security policy.

• The policy specifies an alternate to the Windows shell.

• The Hitachi ID Password Manager shell opens a kiosk-mode Web browser to the self-service password reset Web page.

• Applies both to on-line and mobile users.

• Can be used to reset/unlock both local and networked passwords. • No browser navigation, controls, border, etc.


29 GINA Extensions

Support locked out users without a "generic" domain account:

• Extend the Windows Graphical Identification and Authentication (GINA) subsystem, which: is responsible for capturing Ctrl-Alt-Del,

presents the login screen and handles screen savers.

• The Windows GINA can be replaced by third-party DLLs, such as: Novell NetWare.

Strong authentication products (smart cards, biometrics, etc.).

• Hitachi ID Password Manager includes two GINA extension approaches, both of them: Launch a kiosk-mode web browser.

Run the browser with an unprivileged account.

• The first is aGINA wrapper DLLthat adds a password reset button in the login prompt.

• The second is aGINA serviceprogram that adds a password reset button without modifying the native GINA DLL.

30 Self-service via Telephone

• Identification options:

Numeric ID (e.g., employee number). Numeric mapping of network login ID. • Authentication options:

Numeric security questions (e.g., driver’s license, DoB). Biometric voice print verification.

Hardware token. • Features:

Password reset / unlock. Token PIN reset.

HDD encryption key recovery. • Platform options:

Use HiTPM (turn-key system).

Extend call logic on an existing IVR, using Hitachi ID Password Manager API. • Limitations:


31 Flexible, Secure Authentication

Hardware tokens:generated password + keyed PIN. • Biometric:voice print, finger print.

PKI:smart cards, software certificates. • Challenge/response using:

Built-in or external data source.

Both user-defined and standard questions. A flexible algorithm to validate answers. Multiple sets of multiple questions.

Open architecture: Easily integrate with new authentication systems.

32 Benefits of Self-Service Password Reset

Savings Security

40% to 70% of users resolve their own problem,

and do not call the help desk. • Stronger authentication prior to passwordresets. • Reset passwords meet quality controls. • Detailed audit trail of authentication

attempts, resets.

33 Help Desk Password Reset

Problem Solution

• Even with synchronization and

self-service password reset, some users continue to call the help desk.

• These calls can take 5-15 minutes to resolve and cost $25 – $35.

• Assisted password reset shortens password-related support calls.

• One process and UI handles everything: Authenticate the analyst.

Authenticate the caller. Reset multiple passwords. Clear lockouts.


34 Assisted Password Reset Process

• Help desk analysts use a Hitachi ID Password Manager Web page to: Login (authenticate the analyst).

Look up the caller’s record. Authenticate the caller.

Reset one or more passwords.

Automatically create a ticket in the call tracking system. • Call resolution time is reduced to 1 – 2 minutes.

• Help desk analysts don’t require direct access to target systems.

35 Incident, E-mail Integration

Open architecture to push event notification to other systems.

• Simple configuration specifies what events to capture and what actions to take. • Binary integration programs are included for:

Altiris Assyst BMC Remedy SDE Footprints CA Unicenter Clarify HEAT HP Service Desk ServiceNow Tivoli Track-It!


36 HiPM Assisted Service Notes

Help desk analysts may:

• Either see, or be required to type answers to caller-authenticating questions. • Either reset passwords, or reset-and-expire passwords.

• Enable or disable caller access to Hitachi ID Password Manager self-service. • Be granted the ability to:

See or edit answers to security questions. See or edit login ID profiles data.

Manage SecurID tokens.

37 Benefits of Assisted Password Reset

Savings Security

Remaining password reset calls are reduced to

approximately 1 minute. • Ensure that callers are alwaysauthenticated prior to password resets. • Reduce the number of people with

administrative rights.

• Improve accountability for help desk password resets.

• Enforce password policy over reset passwords.


38 Impact of Synchronization and SSPR




39 RSA SecurID Token Management

Problem Solution

Users with RSA SecurID tokens forget their PINs, lose their tokens, require clock synchronization, etc.

Users can clear, synchronize or reset their token PINs; synchronize their token clocks; enable/disable their tokens or get emergency access passcodes using the Hitachi ID Password Manager self-service token management feature.

40 Token Management Process

• Users authenticate with a password.

• Once authenticated, users can: Enable / disable tokens.

Request emergency access codes. Clear / set their PIN.

Re-synchronize tokens.

41 Benefits of Token Management

Savings Security

Fewer, shorter help desk calls for token

problems. • Fewer people with ACE administrationprivileges.

• Stronger authentication prior to token support.


42 Managed User Enrollment

Problem Solution

• Deployment may require new user profile data:

Question/answer pairs for authentication.

Login ID reconciliation between systems.

Biometric samples (e.g., voice prints).

• Hitachi ID Password Manager includes a managed enrollment system, which identifies users that need to enroll and invites them to do so.

43 Reconcile Login IDs Between Systems

Where login IDs are different on some systems, and there is no existing directory, meta

directory, matching attribute or map file to connect them, users can be prompted to "claim" their own IDs:

• Users sign into a secure Hitachi ID Password Manager registration Web page. • Users enter a login ID and password.

• HiPM finds unallocated instances of the login ID in the identity cache and tries to sign into those target systems with the password the user provided.

• The login ID / target system ID is added to the user’s profile if the password worked.

44 Benefits of Managed Enrollment

Savings Security

Simple to setup, low-cost data gathering. • Secure authentication prior to registration. • Collect answers to security questions. • Correlate login IDs across all systems. • Identify orphan accounts.
