Number of minutes before PIN cache is cleared

Defines the number of minutes before the PIN cache is cleared. The default value is 15.

If this value is set to 9999, the PIN cache timeout is infinite. This means that PIN cache is cleared at log off or shutdown or session disconnect or card removal or workstation lock (depending on the Disable PIN cache clearance on workstation lock setting).

If this setting is disabled or not configured, then the default value is taken into account.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista SP1
