Yes we can imagine have a page that initialize questions, asking for user password first. Thsi will be the responsibility of administrator to decide how inform users to initialize questions (he may want to do that by mail, or with a trigger on a connector, etc.)

We have to manage translation of questions! So we can just put in user entry the reponse with this syntax:

responseAttribute: {questionId}responseString

Then each questionId will be an input in lang.inc.php so we can display the question in user's language. This can be done with an array.

Seems good?

I think "LTB Self Service Password" should have a "Secret Question"-like feature to reset your own password.
(when a user forgot his/her password)

Of course, secret question (or similar information) should be stored on the ldap database.
