UVA Identity Token Authentication
Testing Your UVA Identity Token
Note: This test must be run using Microsoft Internet Explorer (Windows) or Safari (Mac).
- Insert your UVA Identity Token into the USB interface and wait a few seconds, then start the UVA Identity Token Test.
- A window appears (similar to the one below), displaying your name as it is stored in the
hardware token. Click OK to continue.
- Edit token password.
Windows (and Macs with older software)
The prompt appears for the password/PIN/passphrase that you set on your UVA Identity Token. Enter your password and click OK to continue.
Macs (Current SafeNet Software)
Users with the latest version of the SafeNet Tools for Macintosh may see this prompt instead of the SafeNet prompt at left:
Please enter your token password in this prompt, not your personal keychain password.
Warning: If you enter a Token password incorrectly ten times in a row, the token will shut down permanently. In that event, you will have to return your token to the Information Security Access Management Office and have it reprogrammed with new credentials.
- A screen appears, providing information about the token's certificate such as the user's name, the certificate authority and serial number, and when it expires. Note: if you re-run the test using the same instance of your Web browser within ten minutes of your initial test, you will not be prompted again for the password to your UVA Identity Token the second time.
