SIM authentication is a great way to add an additional layer of security to the SIM connection process, and prevent unauthorised access or usage.
To enable or edit SIM authentication, first check What are the SIM capabilities? to ensure the MNO supports the feature.
Then take the following steps:
- Log in to Emport
- Locate your SIM on the dashboard using the Global Search or Advanced Filter
- Click on the SIM
- At the bottom of the screen tick the "Enable SIM Authentication" box
- Enter the desired username and password in the pop-up and click "Save"
This username and password will now be required when the device attempts to authenticate on the Arkessa private APN.
