Restricting "Remember Username/Password" Option
Posted 23 May 2003 - 08:51 PM
Is it possible to prevent users from checking the "Remember Username/Password" box in the PROIV 4.6 client? The client environment is Windows 2000 (for the most part) and simply making the profile read-only isn't sufficient; users can just "Save As" and save the profile elsewhere. What I'm looking for is some way to restrict this capability at the client level, and not the file level (if possible).

You can create a user-mode piv that prompts for password, and rename it to piv.base.
Then write a batch file as follows, and have the users run the batch file:
copy piv.base %TEMP%\mylogin
call c:\proivclient\proiv.exe %TEMP%\mylogin
Have users run the batch file, if they enter and save a password, it is
lost as soon as they exit the client.

302. This has a configuration option that under application tab, has
a "user configuration" setting which once saved and reloaded,
limits access to the application tab. For me, this client setting
is quite annoying as the logon/logoff icon (lightning bolt) is
As for the "Remember Username/Password", unfortunately,
since the "Prompt for Login" is enabled, the checkbox still
So.. tne fix would be to
save the user's name/password in their .piv individually,
disable the "Prompt for logon",
(optional, enable "user configuration")
then make the .piv read only.
Unfortunately, this means there is basically no security, esp if
you have each account setup as/with a transparent logon.

I do like the idea of making the piv file read only.
I would like to see ProIV introduce something so we can configure the client to disable the check box altogether. It seems that I wouldn't be alone in wanting this. (I trust ProIV are listening )
