3.5 Novell Client Single Sign-On

When using the smart card method, users enter the card's PIN for eDirectory login and are then prompted to enter a password for the workstation login. Novell Client's Single Sign-On feature can be used to automatically log into the workstation after the eDirectory login. This is accomplished by securely storing the workstation credentials in eDirectory and using them for future logins.

When using Single Sign-On, Novell Client prompts for the workstation password the first time and stores it in eDirectory. On subsequent logins, the user is not prompted for the workstation password. This improves the user's login experience and is recommended for all advanced eDirectory authentication methods.
