Activate middleware

You need to assign the correct middleware in form of the PKCS#11 module by defining a policy in the SafeGuard Management Center. You should do this both for the computer which the SafeGuard Management Center is running on and for the endpoint. Only then can SafeGuard Enterprise communicate with the token. You can define the setting for PKCS#11 module, using a policy, as follows.

Prerequisite: The middleware is installed on the relevant computer and the token has been initialized. The SafeGuard Enterprise Client configuration package must also be installed on the computer on which the SafeGuard Management Center is running.

  1. In the SafeGuard Management Center, click Policies.
  2. Create a new policy of the type Specific Machine Settings or select an existing policy of this type.
  3. In the work area on the right-hand side, select the appropriate middleware under Token support settings > Module Name. Save the settings.
  4. Assign the policy.

SafeGuard Enterprise can now communicate with the token.
