IT department sends an email blast to the users: From now on, everyone will use a single login credential for all areas of the network, according to a pilot fish on the receiving end.
Fish's reaction to single sign-on? "Yahoo! No more numerous account credentials to keep track of for various subsystems within the domain!"
In short order, all users are issued their single login credentials. And someone in IT has thought this through: The new user name and password are the same as for the user's existing email account. That should make them easier for users to remember.
There's just one catch.
It turns out that before a user can get to the single-login screen to use his single-login credentials, he first has to go to the subsystem he's planning to use.
