The SBC Core supports the use of PKI certificates  such as those found in U.S. Department of Defense's Common Access Card (CAC) for authentication. It enables password-less authentication in which the authentication of user is conducted through validation of the PKI certificates (for example, CAC) rather than the standard form based username/password authentication.

On SBC main screen, go to Administration > Users and Application Management > Ema. The Ema window is displayed.
