FIM CM Smart Card Masterkeys RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    I have a question regarding to FIM CM. Currently I´m implementing FIM CM in our customers infrastructure and everything works like it should :-).

    But there was a question coming up regarding Smart Card Masterkeys. Does anybody know how FIM CM handle this keys? I´ve never heard about them.

    To clarify my question:

    -we have the User PIN with which the user authenticates itself together with the Smart Card

    -we have the Admin PIN also known as PUK for Smart Card initialization and Challenge/Response to reset the PIN of the Smart Card

    -then there should be a Masterkey, which I´ve never heard. Our customer claims, that anybody whom has this Masterkey has full control over the Smart Card and he wanted to know if FIM CM randomizes this key or whatever it does with it.

    Can anybody answer this question for me or clarify this PIN/PUK/KEY Chaos?

    Thank you very very much in advance!
