- Just the software – if you already have a card reader and a smart card, or if you plan to use USB flash disks for authentication.
Logon for Windows removes the need to memorize and type long passwords manually.
- Connect the smart card, token or USB disk to the computer and enter the PIN
- If the PIN is correct, perform biometric identification (if this feature is enabled)
- If verification is successful, you are logged on to your desktop or domain

If an invalid PIN is entered 3 times, the key blocks itself and it cannot be used to unlock the computer.
