To configure smart card authentication, you must obtain a root certificate and add it to a server truststore file, modify View Connection Server configuration properties, and configure smart card authentication settings. Depending on your particular environment, you might need to perform additional steps.
Obtain the Root Certificate from the CA You must obtain the root certificate from the CA that signed the certificates on the smart cards presented by your users and administrators.
Obtain the Root Certificate from Windows If you have a CA-signed user certificate or a smart card that contains one, and Windows trusts the root certificate, you can export the root certificate from Windows.
Add the Root Certificate to a Server Truststore File You must add root certificates to a server truststore file for all users and administrators that you trust. View Connection Server instances and security servers use this information to authenticate smart card users and administrators.
Modify View Connection Server Configuration Properties To enable smart card authentication, you must modify View Connection Server configuration properties on your View Connection Server or security server host.
Configure Smart Card Settings in View Administrator You can use View Administrator to specify settings to accommodate different smart card authentication scenarios.
