Secret Server

Expire Secrets

A core feature of Secret Server is Secret expiration. Any Secret Template can be set to expire within a fixed time interval. For a Secret to expire, a field must be selected as the target for interval changing. For example, a Secret Template for Active Directory accounts might require a change on the password field every 90 days. If the password remains unchanged past the length of time specified, that Secret is considered expired and will appear on the Expired Secrets dialog on the home page.

Secret expiration provides additional security by reminding users when sensitive data requires review. This can assist in meeting compliance requirements that mandate certain passwords be changed on a regular basis. When expiration is combined with Remote Password Changing, Secret Server can completely automate the process of regularly changing entire sets of passwords to meet security needs.
