Release Date: 2020-04-03


Nexus Personal Desktop App 1.3.6 has been released today.

Main new features

externalTags option

  • QuitAfter = X
    The QuitAfter flag can be added to the header field externalTags (optional field). It causes Personal Desktop App to quit after a delay of X milliseconds after a successfully performed operation.

Comma sign in CongratsMessage

  • If you use CongratsMessage=msg in the Provision command, it displays the given message (msg) instead of the default one at the end of successful provisioning. If you want to have a comma sign (,) in the message, escape it by using double backslash: \\,

Transport PIN from server to client

In the Provision command, each certificate signing request, csr, record you submit has a field called keystate. If you set this field to “PREACTIVATION”, then the key well be deleted after the import certificate message is concluded.

This key is only used for transporting the PIN from the server to the client and there is no need for the key afterwards.

It is supported for OS, VSC and TPM profiles.

Delete profile if an error occurs during import

A switch has been added that controls the behavior of Personal Desktop App if an error occurs during the import of p12s in certificate import. The profile is deleted and there is an error report.
