What is LAPS?

LAPS is a system for managing local passwords on users’ workstations. This tool aims to ensure the confidentiality of data and reduce the risk in case of loss or theft of workstations.

What does LAPS provide?

LAPS provides security for workstations and the entire network by providing the following security features:

> Generation of a unique local administrator password per workstation

> Centralized storage of local administrator accounts on AD

> Blocking the risk of a lateral movement attack from a compromised workstation

> Centralized management of local administrator password expiration

Why is LAPS an opportunity?

If you have a single administrator password across all workstations and are concerned about the size of your attack surface:

> LAPS is integrated into the Windows system for free.

> Deployment and management of the tool is done on the existing AD infrastructure.
