MIM 2016 as a Password Manager (similar to LastPass) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I am interested in using MIM 2016 for a few purposes, but one of the things I am curious about and have been unable to find anything about, is using MIM as a password manager/password vault.  One of the things I am looking to do is find a better vault that the one we are currently using, as as MIM is included in my existing licensing with MSFT, I figured it may be something to look at.  Adding in the PAM and other great features make it a great tool, but I need to ensure it can do the basics for the "normal" accounts.


    • Have multiple folders that contain various passwords that users can store and retrieve, and have different levels of access depending on the folder, i.e. Sysadmins can see folders 1 + 2, DBAs can see 2 + 3, helpdesk can see 2 + 4.

  • MIM will not do that. MIM is not a vault. You need to look into CyberArk or Lieberman

  • Thanks, much appreciated.  While those look good, I think they are out of my price range.  A more feasible options I was looking at (for unlimited users) is this:

  • You could do this in a round-a-bout way with FIM/MIM. Add NTFS permissions to the files you're talking about so that only select security groups have read/write permissions and then use FIM/MIM to manage the membership of those groups.

  • He needs a vault.  This is not the same thing.
