1.0 Novell SecretStore Overview

Novell® SecretStore® is a simple and secure password management solution. SecretStore enables you to use a single authentication to Novell eDirectory™ to access most UNIX*, Windows*, Web, and mainframe applications.

After you've authenticated to eDirectory, applications enabled for SecretStore store and retrieve the appropriate login credentials. When you use SecretStore, you eliminate the need to remember or synchronize all the multiple passwords required for accessing password-protected applications, Web sites, and mainframes.

NOTE:SecretStore 3.4.1 has the same functionality as earlier versions, but is built on eDirectory 8.8.x, rather than eDirectory 8.7.3.x used in earlier versions.
