 From the network administrator perspective, we prefer to use a 3rd
party/central authentication system where feasible, to reduce the number of
passwords entries in our network from Users*Systems to
Users*Security_Domains, and keep a gpg encrypted file (and a physical copy)
in a safe location of rarely used admin/root passwords that we only
need in an emergency (e.g. when RADIUS goes down).
