Gemalto customers migrating from IDGo 800 must uninstall their version of IDGo 800 and install SafeNet Authentication Client.
If you have the original version of the IDGo 800 driver installed on your Mac, Safenet Authentication will not install (installation will be denied). Follow the procedure below to uninstall the old IDGo 800 minidriver installation. It will then be possible to install the Safenet Authentication Client.
First save the following code in the main Documents folder as file removal-IDGo800.sh. You can save it in a text editor or Notepad.
# script shell for uninstallation/removing of IDGo 800 PKCS#11 package
echo Deleting /usr/local/lib/pkcs11
rm -rf /usr/local/lib/pkcs11
echo Deleting /usr/local/lib/libidprimepkcs11.0.dylib
