Managing smart cards

Managing smart cards


There are two ways to manage smart cards. The first one is performed through the EAM solution, whereas the second one is performed through an external Content Management System (CMS):

The tasks described in this section will allow you to perform the following operations on your smart cards:

  • Configure parameters of use.
  • Manage certificates.
  • Assign.
  • Configure self-assignment parameters.
  • Unlock.
  • Manage an oversight, a loss or a theft.
  • Format.
  • Display information.

As a smart card administrator, you will assign smart cards (Assigning smart cards (except loan cards)) and frequently change their states, as shown in the following diagram:

You will also have to assign lending cards (Managing loan cards) upon an oversight, a loss or a theft, as shown in the following diagram:

To perform administration tasks, you will use the Smart cards or the Directory panel. Depending on the selected panel, you will use the following interfaces:

The administration procedures are different depending on the panel used to manage smart cards. Tasks can be performed from one or another panel, or both.

To act on a particular user, you will use the Directory panel.

To act on a standard smart card, you will use the Smart cards panel.

The following schema presents the main tasks to be performed in the different panels:

Your administration profile defines the EAM Console interface that you can use to manage smart cards. Administration modes and roles allow you to open one of the panels, as shown in the following schemas:
