Password Expiration Just Annoys Me

It is no secret that password expiration annoys just about everyone on the planet. Even with the advent of SSO and Password Vaults to help ease the pain…its still an unpleasant experience. I change the password to my bank account and then I have to re-validate my financial aggregator followed by my mobile and desktop apps and pretty much everything else that relies on a security token associated with that credential.

Having worked in the security industry building Identity Management software for 20 years, I have a few thoughts about this.
