This article explains how to enable/disable single sign-on support in Novell SecureLogin for Internet Explorer.

Problem

Novell Secure Login provides single sign-on support for various browsers, including Internet Explorer. This helps users log in to known websites automatically. But users may want to disable this behavior on certain occasions. So, how can that be easily done?

Solution

The method explained here is different from the option provided in the SecureLogin preferences. Also, it applies to all users on a machine, regardless of individual user's SecureLogin settings.

This method is manual in nature, but it can also be automatically performed using NSLConfigMgr tool, with just one click. Because the manual method requires changing the registry keys, it is always good idea to back up registry settings before performing any changes.

Backing Up Registry Settings

1. Open the registry and browse to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects Under this object, you will see following key {7DE7B623-A17E-4A0B-94BA-D1B3BA646792}.

2. Right-click the key and select Export to save it to the iesso1.reg file.

3. Export the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{7DE7B623-A17E-4A0B-94BA-D1B3BA646792} to the iesso2.reg file.

Disabling SSO for Internet Explorer

To disable the SSO for Internet Explorer, you need to remove certain registry keys as described below.

1. Open the registry and browse to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects

2. Delete the following key:
{7DE7B623-A17E-4A0B-94BA-D1B3BA646792}, which lies under the above registry key.

3. Delete following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{7DE7B623-A17E-4A0B-94BA-D1B3BA646792}.

4. Close Internet Explorer and start it again. There is no need to restart the machine.

Enabling SSO for Internet Explorer

To enable SSO support,

1. Double-click the iesso1.reg and iesso2.reg files (these are the registry backup files for the above-mentioned settings). You will see the message saying that registry is updated successfully.

2. Close and restart Internet Explorer to see the SSO in action.
