|Tokens and smartcards / Issuing a token|
The New security officer dialog is displayed.
To enable the SO to authenticate either with or without a token, select Optional.
To make token logon mandatory for the SO, select Mandatory.
With this setting, the private key remains on the token. The token must always be plugged in, or the system will need to be restarted.
To create a new certificate, click the Create button next to the Certificate drop-down list.
Enter the password for the certificate twice and click OK to confirm it.
Specify the location for saving the certificate.
To import certificates, click the Import next to the Certificate drop-down list and open the relevant certificate file.
Searching is first done in a certificate file, then on the token. The certificates may remain in whatever the storage location is.
The SO is created, the token is issued, the logon data is written on the token (depending on the setting), and the token information is saved in the SafeGuard Enterprise Database. You can display the data in the Token area in the Token Information tab.
