Here at UMS we have a self-service page (that fac/staff and students can
use) to do password resets via user generated questions and answers. We need
some retooling in that area and in particular I don't think the user
generated questions turned out to be such a good idea.
There is a discussion right now on the educause IDM list about password
distribution and service that you may find helpful -
One idea I got from it that I hadn't considered before is that the questions
should be opinion based because it may be harder for me to know your opinion
of something than to know a fact about you.
