Oracle VM VirtualBox How to create multi-page Logins | 1Password 3 User Guide Some websites like banks or business admin portals employ multi-page login systems, usually as a security precaution. The theory is that these systems make it more difficult for a malicious hacker to use scripts and other tools to try and break into someone’s account. It is possible for you to still use 1Password with many of these sites, though you will have to create multiple Logins — one for each page of the site’s login process. The best practice we have found for multi-page login systems is to develop some kind of a naming scheme for each one, like “Bank 1,” “Bank 2,” “Bank 3,” etc. This will keep your Logins organized and easy to use for each step of the process when you want to log back in. Before we get started, click the 1Password button (a key icon) in your browser’s toolbar, select Settings > Logins, and ensure that the “Ask to save new logins” box is checked. How to create your multi-page Logins Step 1: Save the first Login This is where your naming scheme comes in handy.

Multisite Login Multisite Login allows a user to login to all sites in a multisite configuration, even though the multisites do not share domain names. For example: etc. NOTE: if you are using several sites on the same domain (ex.,,, etc.), then you do not need this module. This module was designed to be an alternative to the singlesignon module but using a technique that does not block search engines from accessing your websites. You must be: Using a multisite installation.Using a separate database for each site (no table prefixing, though the code could be modified to allow for this, patches welcome). See the README.txt file for more information.

Amazon's Dynamo In two weeks we’ll present a paper on the Dynamo technology at SOSP, the prestigious biannual Operating Systems conference. Dynamo is internal technology developed at Amazon to address the need for an incrementally scalable, highly-available key-value storage system. The technology is designed to give its users the ability to trade-off cost, consistency, durability and performance, while maintaining high-availability. Let me emphasize the internal technology part before it gets misunderstood: Dynamo is not directly exposed externally as a web service; however, Dynamo and similar Amazon technologies are used to power parts of our Amazon Web Services, such as S3. We submitted the technology for publication in SOSP because many of the techniques used in Dynamo originate in the operating systems and distributed systems research of the past years; DHTs, consistent hashing, versioning, vector clocks, quorum, anti-entropy based recovery, etc. The official reference for the paper is:

Single sign-on Single sign-on (SSO) is a property of access control of multiple related, but independent software systems. With this property a user logs in once and gains access to all systems without being prompted to log in again at each of them. Conversely, single sign-off is the property whereby a single action of signing out terminates access to multiple software systems. As different applications and resources support different authentication mechanisms, single sign-on must internally translate and store credentials for the different mechanisms, from the credential used for initial authentication. Benefits[edit] Benefits of using single sign-on include: Reducing password fatigue from different user name and password combinationsReducing time spent re-entering passwords for the same identityReducing IT costs due to lower number of IT help desk calls about passwordsIncreases security of third party accounts because long and complicated passwords can be set without needing to remember them.

Crowdsource je werk met (enterprise) social media Social media dringt bij steeds meer organisaties binnen, maar veel mensen weten eigenlijk niet goed hoe ze het in moeten zetten. Ik kijk niet raar meer op als ik mensen "zo, vandaag eens lekker m’n bureau opruimen" zie Yammeren naar 20.000 collega's. Naar situaties waar mensen social media echt gebruiken voor hun werk moet je vaak goed zoeken. In mijn vorige artikel beschreef ik hoe je Enterprise Social Media (ESM) in kunt zetten om effectiever te vergaderen. In dit artikel beschrijf ik een belangrijke competentie die veel professionals moeten ontwikkelen: het crowdsourcen van je werk. Wat is crowdsourcen? Bij crowdsourcing gebruik je de enorme capaciteit van een grote groep mensen om een probleem op te kunnen lossen, nieuwe ideeën op te doen, informatie en kennis te vinden of om kleine taken uit te voeren. Waarom je werk crowdsourcen? Als je een plan moet maken, een voorstel moet schrijven of een onderzoek moet uitvoeren heb je bijna altijd informatie nodig die je zelf niet hebt. Tips
