How to view and configure the policy for Credentials in VIP Manager?
You can view and configure the policy for Credentials. This policy allows you to:
Enable hardware and software VIP credentials that your end users can register within the VIP Self Service Portal.
If you decide not to enable all VIP credentials by selecting No, you need to de-select the specific hardware and/or software credentials that you want disabled. Your selection does not affect previously-registered VIP credentials that may already be enabled.
Enable other credential types for your end users.
Select how many credentials an end user can have registered at any one time.
Choose whether a credential can be registered to more than one end user within your organization at any one time.
To set the Credentials policy:
Select Account in the navigation bar at the top of the page.
Click VIP Policy Configuration in the Links pane on the right side of the page.
Select the "VIP Account" tab.
Click the Edit link to configure the Credentials policy settings.
Note: Desktop Credentials vs. Desktop Credentials?
Desktop Credentials under Hardware section mean VIP Desktop Credentials that make a use of Intel IPT chip, that comes with select devices. You may read about Two Factor Authentication with Intel IPT and Symantec VIP at http://www.symantec.com/connect/videos/two-factor-authentication-intel-ipt-and-symantec-vip.
On the other hand, Desktop Credentials under Software section are those that do not make a use of the Intel IPT chip.
