Setting Private Data Caching Mode

In PKI Client, public information stored on the token is cached to enhance performance. This option defines when private information (excluding private keys on the eToken PRO / NG OTP / Smartcard) can be cached outside the eToken.

To set private data caching mode:

  1. To open eToken PKI Client Properties, do one of the following:

The eToken PKI Client Properties window opens.

  1. Click the Advanced View icon .

The Advanced View window opens.

  1. In the left pane of the eToken PKI Client Properties Advanced View window, expand the required eToken and select Settings.

  2. In the right pane select the Advanced tab.

  3. In the Private data caching mode field select one of the following options:



Always (fastest)

Always caches private information in the application memory. This enables fast performance, as certain information is cached on the host machine. However, this option is less secure than if no cache is allowed.

While user is logged on

Caches private data outside the eToken as long as the user is logged on to the eToken. Once the user logs out, all the private data in the cache is erased.


Does not cache private data.
