Summary: Microsoft is offering the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) that provides a solution to the issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain.

Domain administrators using the solution can determine which users, such as helpdesk administrators, are authorized to read passwords.
