Notes from ITS Council - 11/29/17

  • New Items
    • Password Management
      • We had a request for access to our system for multiple password management. We will follow-up and provide a license and training and support to the requester. We have been getting requests occasionally for licenses and this afforded a discussion on how we should proceed generally. We agreed that we would support any Luther employee that has need and has requested support. We are not ready/staffed to broadly initiate and/or broadly publish support of this kind but we do want to encourage usage because it’s a good way to manage multiple passwords without either poor alternative - all passwords the same or passwords written down and less than secure. Adam Forsyth will research options for the long haul and this is a prereq to any broad rollout. Our current vendor is talking increasing prices so we may need to consider other options.
