Smart Card Parent topic

Smart card authentication requires both a PIN and a physical token to confirm the user identity. To use smart card authentication, make sure that the following requirements are met:
  • The smart card reader is connected to the endpoint and the smart card is inserted into the smart card reader.
  • ActivClient 6.1 with all service packs and updates are installed.
  • Specify the smart card PIN in the password field.
    Failure to provide a correct password sends a password error and may result in locking the smart card.
Smart card authentication is only configurable with PolicyServer MMC.
Enable smart card authentication for each Endpoint Encryption agent:
  • For File Encryption, go to LoginPasswordPhysical Token Required.
  • For Full Disk Encryption, go to Full Disk EncryptionLoginToken Authentication
