If a user forgets his safeboot password, and the password is reset from the SB Admin console, How can the client machine know that the password is reset.

RE: Forgot safeboot password

when it syncs, the utc on the token will be newer than the client.

but of course, the correct way to reset someones password is by the challenge response recovery process, changing it centrally when they are offline is probably not too helpful

Re: RE: Forgot safeboot password


I have similar issue. I have forgotten the SafeBoot password and do not have opportunity to recover that. Is here some way to access my data?

Please help!
