Changes: local password cache.
Synonyms: logon, lgn
Cache the password required for the client locally. Not all protocols require this, and some do not even support it. If you are using a protocol that does not require this then for security reasons it is better not to use it, since the local cache is relatively easy to find and decrypt if your local account/machine is compromised.
Do not make any assumptions about the storage of passwords in the local cache. In particular do not attempt to manipulate it manually - its format may change without warning.
