Create forbidden PIN lists for use in policies

For policies of the type PIN a list of forbidden PINs can be created to define character sequences which must not be used in PINs. PINs are used for token logon. For further information, see Tokens and smartcards.

The text files containing the required information have to be created before you can register them in the SafeGuard Management Center. The maximum file size for text files is 50 KB. SafeGuard Enterprise only uses Unicode UTF-16 coded texts. If you create the text files in another format, they will be automatically converted when they are registered.

Note: In the lists, forbidden PINs are separated by a line break.

To register text files:

  1. In the policy navigation area, right-click Texts and select New > Text.
  2. Enter a name for the text to be displayed in the Text item name field.
  3. Click [...] to select the text file previously created. If the file needs to be converted, a message will be displayed.
  4. Click OK.

The new text item is displayed as a subnode below Texts in the policy navigation area. If you select a text item, its contents are displayed in the window on the right-hand side. The text item can now be selected when creating policies.

Proceed as described to register further text items. All registered text items are shown as subnodes.

Note: Using the Modify Text button, you can add new text to existing text. When clicking this button, a dialog is displayed for selecting another text file. The text contained in this file is appended to the existing text.
