Password Resets

I read this piece from Troy Hunt, which is a long look at the password reset process for a web application. It’s one of the first that I’ve seen which talks about the different implementations, along with the pitfalls and advantages of each.

It’s a great look at passwords, and there are definitely a few things in there I think should be built into authentication frameworks. I know we need to change a few things at SQLServerCentral and I’ve added them to the list.

Pass this one along to your developers. They should be aware of this stuff.
