Setting up a Horizon deployment for iOS clients involves using certain Connection Server configuration settings, meeting the system requirements for Horizon servers and iOS clients, and installing the app for
System Requirements iOS devices that run Horizon Client must meet certain hardware and software requirements.
Preparing Connection Server for Horizon Client Before end users can connect to a server and access a remote desktop or published application, a Horizon administrator must configure certain Connection Server settings.
Installing Horizon Client You can install Horizon Client the same way that you install other iOS apps. You can also configure AirWatch to deliver Horizon Client to end users.
Using Embedded RSA SecurID Software Tokens If you create and distribute RSA SecurID software tokens to end users, users need enter only their PIN, rather than their PIN and a token code, to authenticate.
Configure Smart Card Authentication To use a physical smart card, you must connect and pair the card reader with the device and set the smart card removal policy.
Create a Virtual Smart Card You can create a virtual smart card to use when you log in to a server and connect to a remote desktop. With a virtual smart card, you do not need to connect a traditional smart card reader to the iOS device. One virtual smart card can hold multiple certificates.
Manage a Virtual Smart Card You can reset the PIN for a virtual smart card in Horizon Client. You can also delete a virtual smart card. After you log in to a remote desktop with a virtual smart card, you can also use the Charismathics Security Token Configurator in the remote desktop to view the certificate and key, manage, and change the user PIN for the virtual smart card.
Configure Advanced TLS Options You can select the security protocols and cryptographic algorithms that Horizon uses to encrypt communications between Horizon Client and servers, and between Horizon Client and Horizon Agent.
Configure VMware Blast Options You can configure H.264 decoding for remote desktop and published application sessions that use the VMware Blast display protocol.
Configure the Horizon Client Default View You can configure whether recently used remote desktops and published applications shortcuts, or server shortcuts, appear when you start Horizon Client.
Configure Horizon Client Data Sharing If your Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects and receives anonymous data on client systems to prioritize hardware and software compatibility. You can configure whether to share information on your client system by enabling or disabling a setting in Horizon Client.
