This article explains the list of available registry settings to enable different SecureLogin Smart Card features.
The below mentioned registry settings can be used to customize or modify the behavior of SecureLogin when installed with Smart Card option.
As you read these settings, note that the "Registry Key Path" indicates the registry path, "STRING or DWORD" indicates the type of the associated registry name and "Value" indicates the value data of that particular registry name.
The procedures explained in the document apply to:

SecureLogin Smart Card support Registry Settings
1. Configure or Modify SecureLogin Smart Card Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) and PKCS11 library path
After installing SecureLogin with Smart card option if the Smart card CSP or PKCS11 library path needs to be changed, update the below registry settings.
3. Enable SecureLogin Smart card support in Kiosk mode
In the earlier versions of SecureLogin, Active Directory authentication of the workstation was used to log in to SecureLogin. With SecureLogin 7.0 SP1 Hotfix 2 and later, you can enable users to log in to SecureLogin separately by using the smart card credentials. To configure this, update the below registry settings.
4. Changing Smart Card user Login Password on Expiry
In eDirectory mode when the user logs in using NESCM (Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method) and the user password is expired, SecureLogin detects the expired password and changes automatically on behalf of the logged in user. To enable this, update the below registry settings.
I am new to this forum and the NetIQ solutions. I am trying to understand if what I am reading is part of a NetIQ software installation or are these settings that I can apply to a computer to initiate a smart card logon with the use of a third party software installation besides active identity.
