Member name Description
Default The administrator key is the default key that was set at the factory where the smart card was manufactured. Multiple smart cards from the same factory will have the same value for the default admin key.
Diversified The administrator key is a unique key that was assigned to the smart card by FIM CM when the smart card was issued.
None No information is specified about the administrator key version.


Base CSP based smart cards use challenge-response administrator authentication. This is done by using a key that is stored on the smart card. The key can have one of two values: Default key, which is set at the factory where the smart card was manufactured, and diversified key, which is set by FIM CM. Diversified keys are unique to each smart card.

This enumeration is used to indicate which key should be used during the computation of challenge-response messages for a Base CSP based smart card. The key diversification configuration is controlled through settings in the profile template.
