This section describes all the administration tasks related to smart card management. It focuses for the most part on how to use the smart card administration module, which can be displayed using the Smart Card button of the navigation bar. This module allows you to assign smart cards to users, format smart cards, display information on a specific smart card and much more.

It is recommended to select this card model if the card is only used with Quest ESSO software modules, and if certificates are not used. 
Windows Smartlogon Compatible: (you cannot apply this model using Windows Remote Desktop).
This model generates a card which can be used with standard Windows authentication. It manages a single certificate, which is the smart card authentication certificate. It is not compatible with the two
Advanced Login models.
Cryptoflex IK Compatible: (you cannot apply this model using Windows Remote Desktop).
This configuration generates a card which can be used with standard Windows authentication, in conjunction with IK software from Schlumberger/Axalto. This configuration loads the authentication certificate and allows two further certificates to be imported from PFX/PKCS#12 files.
