shared password repository
Posted on 2009-12-22
i am part of a organization that has no central location. members are all over the country, and there is no central infrastructure. members have personal computers, running off home ISP, with network equipment you'd expect to see in the average home (i.e. ISP modem & router).
what is the best way to store passwords to shared assets, such as website admin, database admin, etc ? no one person "runs the show". there are a handful of people that need to know various passwords.
someone suggested sharepoint. i cringe at the thought of storing passwords in sharepoint because it's just as vulnerable as any other IIS based website. heck, it's not any more secure than google docs.
what are some options?
i know best case scenario is to not share passwords on any internet facing environment. we could snail mail the list to the people that need them at certain intervals in the year.
but what about some more technological ideas?
