If you are looking for a way to eliminate the number of passwords that your users must use and that your administrators must manage, then implementing a single signon environment may be the answer you need.
This information presents a single signon solution for i5/OS®,
which uses network authentication service (IBM's implementation of the Kerberos V5 standard from MIT) paired with Enterprise Identity Mapping (EIM). The single signon solution reduces the number of sign-ons that a user must perform, as well as the number of passwords that a user requires to access multiple applications and servers.
