The Check Out feature forces accountability on Secrets by granting exclusive access to a single user with a One Time Password (OTP).
After “check in,” Secret Server automatically performs a random password change on the remote machine.
No other user can access a Secret while it is checked out. This establishes single accountability for a remote machine accessed during a specific time period.
Check Out requires administrators to always use Secret Server as the password is changed after every use. This also ensures a complete audit trail of password usage.
