Adding Tokens Manually (Single Entry)

To add an OATH token:

  1. From the Multi-Factor Authentication Server window, click the OATH Tokens icon.

  3. In the Add OATH Token dialog, enter the OATH token details.

    OATH Tokens detail



    Serial number

    Enter the serial number that uniquely identifies the OATH token assigned to the token by the manufacturer.  The serial number is generally printed on the back of a token.


    Secret key

    Enter the OATH token's secret key.  This key allows the Multi-Factor Authentication Server to generate the same time-based series of OATH codes as the third-party OATH token in order to validate an OATH code entered by the user associated with the token.  The key must be in base-32 format.



    Enter the manufacturer of the OATH token, e.g. "DeepNet"



    Enter the OATH token's model number, e.g. "SafeID"


    Start date

    Enter the start date of the OATH token from which it is effective.


    Time interval

    Enter the time interval in seconds of the OATH token.  The token will display a new OATH code for each time interval. For DeepNet SafeID tokens, the time interval MUST be set to 60 seconds.



    Specify a valid username or click the Select User button to display the Select User dialog.  When a valid username is specified and the OK button is clicked, the Synchronize OATH Token dialog will prompt for the current OATH code to synchronize the OATH token.

  4. Click the Select User button to assign the token to a user

  5. Click the OK button.

You will be prompted to synchronize the token

If the token is successfully imported, it will list in the OATH Tokens list:
