Active Directory Web-Based Password Reset
From: Jason Brooks <jbrooks () longwood edu>

We are looking at implementing a web-based password reset system for our entire campus. This would allow us numerous enhancements and security benefits without requiring a 24 hour help desk staff. I know that there are disadvantages to such a system. Our initial plan is to develop one in-house. So doing, we don't want to reinvent the wheel, or follow others into known pitfalls. So, what I am requesting is any advice, war stories, suggestions, pitfalls, etc you can muster.

Thanks,
Jason
