The Identity Assurance Client contains the software needed to install and configure a workstation for use with the Identity Assurance Solution. The Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method (NESCM) is bundled with the Identity Assurance Client CD and it provides smart card-based authentication for eDirectory. NESCM can be used as a standalone eDirectory authentication method outside of the Identity Assurance Solution.
