To configure smart card authentication, you must obtain a root certificate and add it to a server truststore file, modify View Connection Server configuration properties, and configure smart card authentication settings. Depending on your particular environment, you might need to perform additional steps.

1

You must obtain the root certificate from the CA that signed the certificates on the smart cards presented by your users.

2

If you have a CA-signed user certificate or a smart card that contains one, you can export the root certificate if it is trusted by your system.

3

You must add the root certificate for all trusted users to a server truststore file so that View Connection Server instances and security servers can authenticate smart card users and connect them to their View desktops.

4

To enable smart card authentication, you must modify View Connection Server configuration properties on your View Connection Server or security server host.

5

You can use View Administrator to specify settings to accommodate different smart card authentication scenarios.
