For self-service software, our foremost duty is to establish the identity of the user requesting account unlock self-service. SIXTUS® Service Plus employs two techniques in order to verify and establish the identity of a user:
A secure active directory password policy demands users to change their passwords on a periodic basis. This is with a motive to ensure security of user logins and prevent attacks by any intruder. Users are notified on a periodic basis by email to change their own passwords by the administrator. Domain users can change their own password - without helpdesk's assistance - using SIXTUS® Service Plus change password tool, which prevents an account lockout and therefore the need for an account unlock.
SIXTUS® Service Plus web based, self service change password solution provides an easy to use web interface to allow domain users to change their own passwords by login into the self service portal. Any user can click on the change password link on the web portal and change his windows login password. The type of password a user can change and the password policy can be viewed on the display of the SIXTUS®Service Plus change password screen. Users can change their passwords according to policy set by the administrator and further be aware of other policy requirements and complexities.
The need for a change password can occur as a result of one or more of the following instances
Reset password is where an old password which is forgotten by a domain user is forced to be reset to a new one even with no knowledge of what the old password was. SIXTUS® Service Plus allows domain users to perform self password reset from its web portal by satisfying validation and identity verification questionnaire answered during enrollment.
Change password does not require a validation process. It only requires a user login into the SIXTUS® Service Plus Domain User login portal. When a user changes his password, he supplies the old password along with the new password, if the old password is correct and the new password follows the password policy then the password will be changed. This is the normal change password process that users go through, when they change their passwords based on password policy
