Assign a Hardware Token to a User

Before a user can use a hardware token to authenticate, you must assign the token to the user. You can assign up to three tokens to a single user.

You can run a command-line utility that restricts the number of tokens that can be assigned to a user.For instructions, see Restrict the Number of Active Tokens per User.

Use the following procedure to assign a token to a user who does not have a token.
