How can I Retain Clients Passwords on Migration from Active Directory?
After recently acquiring a product platform for my organization, I have a concern that makes me seek assistance. This is about how we are to store data on our customer authentication. After weighing a number of options, we decided the most convenient and cost effective way is an active directory, for which we have a support team. Later, though, we may have to go for a simpler more sustainable option, and this is the real cause of my worry.
How do we retain our current clients’ passwords bearing in mind that we may need to change servers?
How do we prevent a situation where our clients are forced to update passwords as a result of this? Is it possible after moving to active directory we can obtain the passwords, replicate the hashing algorithm and change safely?
