| Each user of DTS must obtain a login token. This contains the digital
signature that allows a user to use DTS. There are two types of signature
- The soft token is a 3.5 floppy disk containing
your certification data and must remain in the A:\ drive during
the DTS session.
- The hard token, sometimes called a CAC (Common
Access Card), is a card with an embedded chip containing the user’s
certification data. A special “reader” attached to
the computer reads the data and enables logon. The CAC must remain
in the reader while the user is using the DTS.
In either case, the user will pass through the DBsign secure login
portal to reach DTS.
The user must register with the Local Registration
Authority (LRA) to obtain their soft token or a CAC issuance station for their CAC.
