Net Admins: Managing passwords
Posted on 2005-04-26
I thought I would throw a question out to you all regarding password management. I am a network admin and have tons and tons of logins/password to routers, firewalls, servers ..etc and I currently keep them in a book in my office. What would be a better way to store these types of passwords preferably electronically... it is to the point where I cannot manage them in my head and have to record them... but I want to do this securly. Create an excel file and encrypt it?
Keep it on seperate media and lock it up?
- Must be portable so I can get to it from remote locations. Using disks or CD's squares me as they get lost.
- Must be secure.
