Question
What has to be done in administration when a RSA key pair has been compromised ?

Answer
If you suspect that an RSA key is no longer secure, e.g. if a smartcard is lost, the PKI or the SafeGuard LAN Crypt administration has to issue a new key pair and certificate. The new certificate is assigned to the user in the administration and his profile is re-generated. At the next registration process, all profile information is overwritten.
