  • one user one password integrating unix Accounts and Active Directory
    SIGUCCS: User Services Conference, 2002
    Co-Authors: David J Blezard, Jerry Marceau

    Abstract:

    The University of New Hampshire has a history of using centralized Unix Accounts to authenticate user access to computers in the public Student Computing Clusters. The advent of Windows 2000 meant that changes would be necessary to support the Active Directory architecture underlying Windows 2000 authentication and authorization. Given limited resources, manually maintaining Active Directory Accounts for over 12000 students is an impossibility. A new system was needed to automatically generate an Active Directory Account for each and every Unix user and to synchronize password and other Account information with as little system administrator intervention as possible. Using a combination of technology from Microsoft and various scripts developed within the UNH Computing and Information Services group, we have created just such a system. For every newly created Unix Account, an Active Directory Account with an identical user name is generated. Password changes on the Unix systems pass the corresponding password update to the Active Directory domain controllers to assure that the Accounts remain synchronized. This system has functioned for a full academic year with only minimal issues. With this infrastructure in place, we hope to be able to leverage it in other fashions.

    Abstract:

    What is your digital identity? I personally have at least 15 different identities, and it’s tedious as well as insecure to maintain usernames and passwords for every application. You can categorize such identities as critical, important, and less important based on the impact they may have not only on your digital life but also on your real life if you lose them. The critical ones are enterprise identities you may have with your company or partner companies (such as an Active Directory Account) and financial identities with financial service providers like the firm that manages your 401K or IRA, online banks, and so on. The important ones are personal e-mail identities like Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, and Gmail. The less-important identities belong to social-networking and other web portal sites and can be reestablished without any effect if necessary.
