AD = Active Directory
Copied from one of my books!!
Active Directory isMicrosoft's Directory Server. It provides authentication and authorization mechanisms as well as a framework within which other related services can be deployed (AD Certificate Services, AD Federated Services, etc). It is an LDAP compliant database that contains objects.
Company I work for uses some software called snow to monitor what's going on. I used to delete logs occasionally but only as an experiment. Can still do that but I'm not concerned about monitoring other than them being nosey bastards.
Anyone have experience of this snow software?
No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...
As already said, I doubt they know or can see your password.
It is however easy to run audits against AD to check password strength, but some might say it's even easy to use GPO to actually force a proper password policy.
What is more likely is some idiot as got their password on a post it note stuck to their screen.
but just out of interest your Time to crack your password: ( From [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] )
Review: Fantastic, using that password makes you as secure as Fort Knox.
So it would not get picked up in a audit and the IT team would be happy the passsword is secure. they would not contact the user.
