Issue/Introduction

Question:  

In IE11 where is the ArcotID token stored and how can we ensure that it is not deleted if the browser is closed? 

 

Answer:  

In IE 11 browser, when "memory" option is used as storage, ArcotID is downloaded to memory and this is available only for the current session. 

When "hd" option is used as storage, ArcotID PKI JavaScript Client will be stored as a permanent browser cookie. If user clears cookie/cache, then ArcotId gets deleted.
