We're looking to change our network password change policy to a more-or-less standard MS best practice.  As a result, we, the IT department, will no longer know user passwords.  The problem is that previous passwords were a means of user identifcation/ verification/ authentication.  Thus, we need a new method.  We had proposed using the last 4 digits of the user's SSN, but that was rejected.  I do see that there are some software/application solutions out there.  However, I'd like to see what other people/compainies are doing.  Anyone have a recommendation?  I tired to do a search, but the results were all over the place and not related.
