Can passwords be routed to the domainlogin after a sucessfull logon to the operating system automatically and are automatical password changes possbile?


Yes, this SafeGuard Easy function is called Secure AutoLogon (SAL). The Secure AutoLogon (SAL) is a comfort feature that creates a connection between the Windows and the SafeGuard Easy user. This connection is saved securily in an encrypted file. At next logon, the credentials are read out of this file. The next logon to windows will automatically take place. Only the SafeGuard Easy credentials are required at PreBoot Authentication level (PBA) to authenticate with the System.

Whether the Secure AutoLogon should be used or not must be decided at the installation. Secure AutoLogon can only be used if the option "Password at system start" (Pre-BootAuthentication) is active.

The validity of a SafeGuard Easy password can be configured. The standard value for this validity is 90 days. Once this period has expired, the user has to change his SafeGuard Easy password at next logon.
