Overview

End users can use security tokens, which are also called smart cards, to store user certificates used for applications such as single sign-on access and client authentication. End users are issued the tokens containing certificates and keys required for signing, encryption, and other cryptographic functions. To use the tokens, the TPS must be able to recognize and communicate with them. The tokens have to be enrolled, the process of formatting tokens with keys and certificates and adding them to the Certificate System. Enterprise Security Client provides the user interface for end entities to enroll tokens and to communicate with the TPS. Enterprise Security Client provides the conduit through which TPS communicates with each token over a secure HTTP channel (HTTPS).
