Many organizations still follow the traditional practice of writing or printing passwords on paper and keeping them in a physical vault, which would remain under the control of the IT department.
When you have issues with your password or you need to unlock your account, you will have to either track the person who may be away from the office or you will have to get the credentials from the physical vault. After accessing the resource, IT will have to ensure the passwords of the resources that were accessed during the emergency situation are changed to avoid misuse of credentials. The problem does not end here – the paper on the physical vault has to be updated with the new passwords and the resource owner, when he/she comes back, will need a copy of the new passwords.
This manual process is quite cumbersome, error-prone and highly insecure. Replacing the manual processes by deploying a digital password could solve problems like this in a fully automated fashion, yet ensuring the highest level of security.
