The DIGIPASS GO 7 token is a synchronous hardware token that allows you to authenticate to a protected network. The DIGIPASS GO 7 token is simple to use and administer, with no PIN or application selection required by the user and no initialization required by the administrator.

The DIGIPASS GO 7 token authenticates via a dialog between the user and the Defender Security Server. It offers the ultimate in user-friendly high security. The unique one-time password is displayed on a high contrast LCD display. The user reads the number in the display and enters it into the Defender prompt. The system uses the password as additional proof of identity. The password changes periodically, making it very difficult for an intruder to guess.

The DIGIPASS GO 7 token is are key-fob size piece of hardware.



The DIGIPASS GO 7 token can be carried in a pocket, around the neck for moving within the company, on a key ring or clipped to a belt. The token is very light - 13 grams and has an 6 - 8-character, liquid-crystal display (LCD). Each character is capable of displaying numbers (0-9).

The DIGIPASS GO 7 token works in synchronous mode. During the user authentication process, the token generates an internal challenge. The internal challenge is based on an internally generated time clock. For successful authentication with the Defender Security Server, the Defender Security Server and the Defender tokens must agree on the value in the token's time clock.

The value in the token’s time clock can become out of sync with the Defender Security Server. If this happens, you will not be able to use the token for authentication. In this case, contact your system administrator.

DIGIPASS GO 7 is powered by a single 3-volt lithium battery (CR2025 or equivalent). The life of the battery is approximately 7 years from the date the token was purchased.

Before you start using the DIGIPASS GO 7 token for authentication, you need to register it. You can either have the system administrator register the token for you or you can register the token yourself.

Your system administrator may configure a special Web site called the Defender Self-Service Portal where you can register hardware tokens. Contact your system administrator to learn if you can use the Defender Self-Service Portal to register hardware tokens and to obtain the address (URL) of the portal Web site.For more information, see Hardware Token.
