When an administrator checks this option, the answers provided by End-Users to validate Security Questions at Enrollment are stored in the product database using a Reversible Encryption. This information can be viewed as a report "Security Questions and Answers Report".

 

  • By default answers are stored using irreversible encryption. The administrator can view the questions Enrolled but answers will remain encrypted in the report.

  • Only the Answers of users who Enroll after this option is checked can be viewed.

  • Only Security answers can be viewed and ADSelfService Plus does not show end-users passwords.

When an administrator checks this option, Answers to Security Questions are hidden to the End-users when they use the application to attempt a Password Reset / Account Unlock operation.

 

  • This lets a user reset his password even when a colleague is besides him.
