Activating a new digital signature card or token

New digital signature cards and tokens during delivery don't contain any certificates for security reasons. The card needs to be activated and have the certificates installed on it in the first steps. 

Activation, PIN operations (unlocking and changing) and later certificate renewals can only be done on a Windows PC!

The activation process can be viewed in the following video. Be sure to turn the subtitles on!
