Allowing users to change Password via a Dashboard object

The majority of my users only access dashboards and never interact with Manager or EC.  Since nimsoft cannot use AD, I am creating uid's that match our AD uid's.  I've been assigning generic passwords. I'd like to force users to change their passwords on their first login or give them the ability to change the password on their own, so I don't have to maintain a password list.  I know it is possible to run user_edit from the hub pu to change a password, but I want to verify that a user is only changing their own password, not someone elses. 
Is there any solution to this? 
Prompt user for uid, then prompt user for current password.  Verify uid/password match.  If uid/pass match, prompt for new password.  Pass uid and new password into pu hub edit_user to change password. 
I figure if I can't verify they know their current password,  it would allow them to enter any uid and change the password...this would not work.

Does anyone know if some integration with AD is in the works?
