This IBM Redpaper describes how the IBM Tivoli Identity Manager Reverse Password Synchronization mechanism works. This mechanism is used by most clients as a vital component of their Tivoli Identity Manager deployment, but there are areas where this mechanism could be better documented. This IBM Redpaper aims to provide a comprehensive technical guide to this key component of Tivoli Identity Manager.

This document focuses on the Windows Reverse Password Synch modules, because they are the most deployed. But it also covers the other modules and the password synchronization provided through IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator.
