Managing users

Managing users

You can use the Defender Management Portal to manage users in your Defender environment. You can search for and select a particular user, and then do the following:

  • View user’s authentication details
  • Manage security tokens for the user
  • Manage Defender password for the user
  • Manage PIN for the tokens assigned to the user

To manage users, the account with which you sign in to the Defender Management Portal must have the administrator role assigned. For more information, see Portal roles.

To manage a user

  1. Sign in to the Defender Management Portal.

    For more information, see Opening the portal.

  2. Click the Administer Defender option.
  3. In the left pane, click the Management tab.

    2. Click the Search button and wait for your search to complete.
    3. If prompted, select the user from the search results.
  6. Use the following areas to manage the user:
    • Tokens assigned to <user name>  Provides a list of security tokens assigned to the user. You can use this area to view information about the assigned tokens, program new software tokens, assign existing token objects to the user, remove tokens from the user, and set a Defender password for the user. For more information about elements you can use in this area, see the table below this procedure.
    1. Authentication details  Use this area to view information about the user account, such as the time of last authentication, violation count, and violation reset count. If necessary, you can reset the violation count for the user. You can also enable, view, and change user’s Defender ID. The user can authenticate to Defender by using the enabled Defender ID.

Element

Description

Program Token

Allows you to program a new software token for the user.

Assign Token

Allows you to select and assign an existing token object to the user.

Set Defender Password

Allows you to configure a new Defender password for the user.

Unassign

Removes the tokens selected in the list from the user. Note that this does not delete the corresponding token objects from Active Directory.

Manage

Allows you to manage the corresponding token. Depending on the token type, the page that opens may provide some or all of the following tabs:

  • Test  Allows you to run a test operation that checks if the token generates a valid response.
  • PIN  Allows you to assign a new PIN to the token. This is required if the authentication issue is related to an incorrect or forgotten PIN. On the page that opens, type the new PIN in the New PIN and Confirm PIN text boxes.

    If you want the user to change the PIN after the user logs on for the first time, select the User must change PIN at next authentication check box.

    When you are finished, click Set PIN to save the changes.
