Seeking advice, anecdotes, ideas...
Here's my situation. I have a pool of 20+ people that are off-site.
I occasionally have need of communicating to them system password
In the past, we've sent them cards with the passwords printed on them,
with admonishments to destroy cards after the item has been committed to
Recently we've started seeing that they've taken these cards, taped them
into their laptops in plain sight. (And occasionally annotated them
with much too much information as to what that password would buy you.)
Since the passwords are complex, phone conversations tend to lead to a
lot of phonetic spelling and shouting.
Since the some of users have POP accounts for their e-mail I don't want
to use e-mail as a secure method of sending them passwords..
So, what do *you* use for password distribution?
