Best Identity Management


Overall Category Winner and Winner for Best Password Management: Password Auto Repository from e-DMZ Security

The Password Auto Repository (PAR) was designed to provide a commercial solution to the problem of shared administrative password management. Designed in a purpose-built appliance, the PAR addresses the storage, release, update, and auditing of administrative passwords.

The solution also acts as a strong auditing solution, with time and date stamping to track password usage and where passwords are stored. Additionally, it keeps track of the history of all password versions and the changes made to them. A granular access control mechanism is provided to control who has access to each password, as well.

A purpose-built hardened appliance, the PAR includes a commercially embedded firewall (CyberGuard SG630) to protect the network interface. No interactive access is allowed. The hard disk is encrypted using AES256 disk encryption to protect against physical attack. The passwords themselves are also AES256 encrypted prior to being stored on the PAR.
