FIM (Forefront Identity Manager) does password syncing between Network passwords and Pipeline passwords. It also does self-service password resets and unlocks (SSPR). The sync allows for you to automatically reset your password through a website and it reset both your Pipeline and Network passwords and they automatically match.

The self service password reset is done using your current password to register and fill out security questions, much like pipeline is currently on first sign-on, and from that point forward you can go to another website and as long as you know your username and the answers to at least two for your security questions you can reset or unlock either account.
