New Features

Support for Resetting your IDEMIA 8.2 PIN via a Challenge/Response

When using IDEMIA 8.2 cards, in addition to supporting PIN reset using a PIN Unblocking Key (PUK), with this release we now support resetting your PIN using a challenge/response prompt. Enterprises can set a preferred method for devices that support both mechanisms.

This option is available to all IDEMIA 8.2 cards. If you have an existing, enrolled IDEMIA 8.2 card, the challenge/response prompt will be available for you if your organization enables it.


User-Friendly Device Names for UCMS-Managed Devices

For all certificate-based authenticators issued in the Unified Portal (including Gemalto and IDEMIA smart cards, YubiKeys, and Virtual Smart Cards), you can now rename them in the Unified Portal using custom, user-friendly names.

Bug Fixes

UCMS 4.15

  • When performing an LDAP sync, if there is a user name in the directory with the same name as the default administrator in UCMS, that account is now ignored. (PM-5206)

Known Issues

UCMS 4.15

  • Issue: Users who attempt to initialize a Virtual Smart Card (VSC) that was created by a third party receive an  Error while performing PIV Administration authentication, Incorrect Admin Key error message.
    • Workaround: Users are now always presented with the alternative option of creating a new VSC. Note that this is a temporary workaround until we add the capability in our solution to identify virtual smart cards not managed by Axiad.
