We’ve now finished coding forms based authentication for Passwordstate, for customers who do not wish to rely on Active Directory for authentication. Essentially each user will need to specify a username and password to authenticate for Passwordstate.
With forms based authentication, Passwordstate is still fully functional except for the following features:
- Only local security groups can be used to logically organize user accounts – no synchronization with Active Directory security groups is possible
- ScramblePad Authentication is not available – not really needed as the user has to manually authenticate anyway
- Adding Active Directory user accounts – obviously 🙂
