6.2.8 Defining Additional Security Policy Parameters for Groups of Users

The Policies tab (only available from a group object) is dedicated to Cluster users and allows you to authorize members of the group to delegate their Windows session to another member of the group.
For more details on the conditions under which a user can delegate a session, see Administrator Guide for Cluster Mode of Advanced Login .
In the tree structure of the Directory panel, select the wanted group of users.
Click the Policies tab.
Select the Define additional Security Policies for members of this group check box.
In the Windows Session Delegation Policy area, select the check box corresponding to the type of delegation you want to authorize to members of the group:
Allow permanent delegation: when a user delegates his/her session, the session is delegated until he/she ends the delegation authorization through the Cluster wizard.
Allow temporary delegation: when a user delegates his/her session, the session is delegated until he/she re-authenticates.
Click Apply.

6.2.9 Managing User Smart Cards

You can manage user's smart cards from the Directory panel, through the Smart Cards tab. But you can also manage smart cards from the Smart Card panel. For practical reasons, all administration tasks related to smart cards are described in a well-marked section. Thus, for more information on how to manage smart cards, see Section 8., "Managing Smart Cards".
The Smart Card tab only appears if you have the "Smart card administrator" role.
