Install SafeNet eToken PRO on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Since I run Ubuntu on my workstation at work I need a working eToken, so every time I upgrade (follow LTS releases) I have to make sure the eToken works. Because some have reported the installation steps I have described for 14.04 are not working for 16.04 I have decided to update the steps for the latest LTS.

Download the new client software at:
http://www.proteq.com.br/download/sac/sac9.1_linux.zip

Unpack the source:

$ unzip sac9.1_linux.zip

Prepare the install:

$ mkdir temp ; sudo mount -o loop SAC_9_1_Linux.iso ./temp

Install:

$ dpkg -i temp/Installation/Standard/DEB/SafenetAuthenticationClient-9.1.7-0_amd64.deb

Done.

      1. Dirk-Jan I just want you to know that your last hint work really fine. Success at first try. Thank you.
        Just in case someone needs to know, I am running Linux Mint 18.1 Serena, Cinnamon, (4.8.0-42-generic #45~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 9 14:10:58 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)

  1. Any idea about the lib path on Linux, for example on windows it is C:\Windows\System32\eTPKCS11.dll.
    What is the equivalent path on Linux?

  2. Dirk-Jan, Thank you after upgrading from ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 it stopped working and you save me again.

    MIK:
    /usr/lib/libeTPkcs11.so on the above distros

  3. Dirk-Jan,
    another question: do you happen to know how to make cisco anyconnect vpnui to read etoken (or speak to SACserv)?
    It works only via Firefox secure device for me like described on Alladin howto page http://www.aladdin-rd.ru/support/faq/etoken/category3/faq1000448/ (sorry in Russian, but it’s the best short howto I managed to find), starting vpnui via java. If I use standalone vpnui it gives me:
    “Please ensure that your eToken is inserted and contains a valid authentication certificate.”
    so it never reads etoken.
    I tried adding etoken into /opt/cisco/anyconnect/profile/vnpclient.xml but it did not work, perhaps missing something.
    Any idea? or maybe you can point me to the right direction.
    Thanks

  4. Thanks! I didn’t found much information about how to install my e-CPF, this article have a download link (other links are outdated or broken) and instructions to make it work.

  5. Hi,
