Safety and security

When the TVD is not being used it must be stored in a secure place.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside the nShield TVD. Any attempt to dismantle the nShield TVD results in any remaining warranty cover, the maintenance and support agreement, or both being rendered void.

To help maintain security:

  1. Always inspect the USB cable and the nShield TVD before use.

  2. Make sure that the two nCipher tamper seals on the nShield TVD are undamaged before using the device.


    If they are damaged the reader could have been tampered with. If this is the case please contact Entrust nShield Support:

  3. Never store or carry smart cards with the nShield TVD.
