Aladdin eTokens can be managed quite easily using a software tool named eToken
Properties. This tool can detect Aladdin devices that can be connected using the USB port
and is used to initialize, set passwords and import certificates onto the devices.
The first thing you should do is to set a password on your devices. The standard password
that is set on factory-initialized devices is 0123456789. Click Change Password to set the
password to something more secure.
A password complexity meter is provided to give you an indicator of how secure your
password is. Use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numerals and punctuation
marks to create stronger passwords.
Next, import the SSL client certificate onto the device. On the Certificates & Keys tab, select
Import Certificate and then choose Import Certificate from File.
Select the P12 file and open it. You will then be prompted for the passphrase.
When the passphrase is entered successfully, the certificate is imported onto the device.
