Assigning the Profile to the Endpoints

  1. In the UMS structure tree, select the devices that are to be connected to the Cherry SECURE Board keyboards.
  2. In the Assigned objects area, click 
  3. Under Profiles, select the appropriate profile using the  button.

  4. Click Ok.
  5. In the Update time dialog, select Now and click Ok.

    The settings and certificate and key files are transferred to the endpoints. The endpoints are ready for connecting to the Cherry SECURE BOARD keyboards.


The endpoint verifies if the Cherry SECURE BOARD has the right certificates. When the optional client certificates have been installed, too, the Cherry SECURE BOARD verifies if the endpoint has the right certificates. When everything went well, the endpoint and the Cherry SECURE BOARD work in secure mode.

On the keyboard side, the secure mode is indicated by the red light next to the lock symbol. On the endpoint side, the secure mode is indicated by an icon on the system tray.
