Issue a token or smartcard to a user

  • The token must be initialized and the relevant PKCS#11 module must be activated.
  • The SafeGuard Enterprise Client configuration package must also be installed on the computer on which the SafeGuard Management Center is running.
  • You need Full access rights for the relevant user.
  1. In the SafeGuard Management Center, click Users and Computers.
  2. Connect the token to the USB interface. SafeGuard Enterprise reads in the token.
  3. Select the user for whom the token is to be issued, and open the Token Data tab in the work area on the right-hand side.
  4. In the Token Data tab, do the following:
    1. Select the User ID and Domain of the relevant user and enter your Windows Password.
    2. Click Issue Token.

    The Issue Token dialog is displayed.

  5. Select the appropriate slot for the token from the Available slots drop-down list.
  6. Issue a new User PIN and repeat the entry.
  7. Under SO PIN, enter the standard PUK received from the manufacturer or the PIN issued when the token was initialized.
    Note: If you only fill in the User PIN (required) field, the user PIN must match the PIN which was issued when the token was initialized. In this case, you do not have to repeat the user PIN and enter an SO PIN.
  8. Click Issue token now.

The token is issued, the logon information written on the token and the token information saved in the SafeGuard Enterprise Database. You can display the data in the Token area in the Token Information tab.
