Discussion: Privileged Accounts

Privileged accounts, such as Administrator or root, have more privileges than an ordinary user account. Anyone with privileged access can perform nearly any action on a system or network. In many environments, privileged accounts and passwords are shared by IT staff.

Privileged access management (PAM), also referred to as privileged account management, eliminates password sharing for privileged accounts. Instead, it uses a “privilege safe” with policies. When administrators need elevated privileges, they request them through the privilege safe, which checks the policy and issues a password for a limited period of time if conditions are met.

Answer the following question(s):

Other than the risk of a privileged account password falling into the hands of an attacker, what is at least one other drawback to sharing those passwords? Explain your answer.

Do you see any pitfalls to using PAM? Explain your answer.
