1) install/enable certificate services on your domain controller(s).
2) use LDAPS to perform the password change. Note that a password change
is an operation on the directory, not a modification of an attribute.
You can write it in java/perl/whatever. CPAN's docs on Net::LDAP are
good on how to do it.
Note : you have to enable certificate services because AD won't let you
do a password change unless it's LDAP via TLS.
If you want a sample code snippit, I could write one. You're free to
request it in any non-microsoft programming language ;)
