Notification Package

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

During a password reset or change operation for a user account, the system notifies any registered software notification packages about the update. Registered software notification packages may update their own private credential state concerning the user account. If such an update fails, a software notification package authentication operation may fail. A software notification package failure may prevent users from accessing resources. Examples of software notification packages (specifically, security software packages) that register for password change notifications include the following: Kerberos, NTLM, Digest, and SChannel, as well as non-Microsoft software.
