SafeHouse administrator smartcards are special smartcards that can be created only by someone who knows the group's administrator password. The purpose of these smartcards is to be able to delegate selected administrator tasks to support personnel without disclosing the administrator password to them. This smartcard works like a proxy, allowing them to perform local and remote password resets just as if they knew the administrator password.
Holders of administrator smartcards will not be able to perform tasks which absolutely require the true password. For example, they won't be able to create additional smartcards.
The topic of administrator smartcards fills up an entire section in this help guide. Please see Using Smartcards for Administration for more information.
