Featured / Nicola Dawes and Phil Gill

NHS Digital will be making an update available to the current version of Identity Agent. This release resolves the issues described below and adds the features as described.

Users of any version of Identity Agent are recommended to update to this version as soon as possible to avoid potential issues with their machines.

This release resolves the issues described below and adds the features as described.

  • Resolves an issue for users whereby the maximum session length is one hour less than expected during the British Summer Time (BST) period.
  • Further minor security updates on Smartcard removal.
  • Adds support to retrieve the user’s details and display these on the initial Passcode form for users of the Entrust Virtual Smartcard. This allows the user to be clear which virtual smartcard the Identity Agent has detected to prevent a user inadvertently locking another user’s card through incorrect passcode entry. Note that the user’s username and UUID is only displayed if a virtual smartcard is detected, if the Identity Agent has detected a physical card in the card reader and is prompting for the physical card passcode it will not display the username and UUID.
