secure server Id with password and apply the password on server restart

Securing a server ID with a password is optional, but should be mandantory.
The downside is that you cannot perform an unattended restart of the server ( Domino or / and OS ).

So we need a mechanism to apply the password automatically.

There is at least one 3rd party tool available ( BCC Domino Protect ). Domino Protect does a lot more than just apply the password.
You can also write your own extension manager using cAPI to achieve the goal. This is what I have done.

But I would like to see this functionality as part of the core product code.

The options to create / store the password could be

1. Set a password in the admin client and store it ( encrypted ) in a place where can access it during server restart.
2. Let the code create a random, high complex password
3. Let the code create a random, high complex password based on properties of the used hardware. This would it make more secure, because the password would not have to be stored anywhere on the machine.

    Didn’t Ulrich Krause create a tool like that: buy it from him!
