Martin Blank writes "I work in a NOC, and one of the debates you will find in any strongly-mixed environment like this is preferred OS. We have people who prefer Windows, some who like Linux, and some who do almost everything on Solaris boxes. However, this also means that much software is not available over all three. With all of the servers, routers, and various other protected systems we have, the sheer quantity of passwords is mind-bogglingly difficult to keep track of in a secure fashion. Are there any packages out there right now running on at least Windows and Linux, and preferably also Solaris, that can access a central password file?"
