2.7 Configuring Timeout for Card Waiting

You can configure the time for which the card waiting dialog is displayed, when the user authenticates using the card method. If the user does not present the card for the timeout period, the Hardware timeout message is shown and then the card waiting dialog is closed and user login selection screen is displayed.

By default the card timeout is 60 seconds.

To configure the timeout for card waiting, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the configuration file /Library/Security/SecurityAgentPlugins/aucore_login.bundle/Contents/etc/aucore_login.conf file.

    If the file does not exist, create a new file

  2. Enter card.timeout: X in the config.properties file. X is the timeout value in seconds.

  3. Save the configuration file.

  4. Restart the operating system.
