Active Directory reversible encryption for single sign-on?

http://serverfault.com – Problem: Creating and maintaining hundreds of student accounts The school where I work runs Active Directory on Server 2008. Every year, our students have to sign up for accounts with a third-party SaaS school management system. That has created a lot of work in the past, as codes have to be generated for students, and students often lose the codes or can't figure out how to enter them. Later, the students who did manage to sign up may forget their usernames or passwords and come to me (the solo sysadmin) for password resets and so forth. Solution 1: Ask users for their passwords This fall, (HowTos)
