|Tokens and smartcards / Assigning certificates|
You can change or renew certificates required for logon by assigning a new certificate in the SafeGuard Management Center. The certificate is assigned as a standby certificate alongside the existing certificate. By logging on with the new certificate, the user changes the certificate on the endpoint.
The new token is issued.
Only one certificate is assigned to the user.
To change a user's certificate for token logon:
SafeGuard Enterprise reads in the token.
The certificate is assigned to the user as a standby certificate. This is indicated by a tick in the Standby column of the user's Certificates tab.After synchronization between the endpoint and the SafeGuard Enterprise Server, the status dialog on the endpoint indicates that it is Ready for certificate change.
The user now has to initiate a certificate change on the endpoint computer. For further information, see the SafeGuard Enterprise user help.
After the user has changed the certificate on the endpoint the certificate is also renewed on the SafeGuard Enterprise Server during the next synchronization. This removes the old token from the user's Certificates tab in the SafeGuard Management Center. The new token becomes the standard token for the user.
