Password Sync Agent


Password Synchronization allows end-users to use a single identity, subject to a single password policy, across various systems and applications. ADSelfService Plus has a robust password synchronization technique that now supports even the native Windows password changes using the "Password Sync Agent".

The Password Sync Agent, when installed on the domain controllers in your domain, intercepts native password changes (e.g.: password change via Ctrl+Alt+Del screen or password reset by admins in ADUC console), encrypts the new passwords, and automatically synchronizes them with multiple systems and applications.
