To ensure there is ample power provided to the Sentry 3 FIPS device, insert it
directly into a USB 2.0/3.0 port on your notebook or desktop, as seen in Figure 1.3.
Avoid connecting it to any peripheral device(s) that may feature a USB port, such
as a keyboard or USB-powered hub, as seen in Figure 1.4.

SETUP (Windows Environment)
Step 1. Insert the Sentry 3 FIPS into an available USB
port on your notebook or desktop and wait for
Windows to detect it.
• Windows Vista/7/8/10 users will receive a device
driver notification as seen in Figure 2.1.
Figure 2.1 – Device Driver Installation
Once the new hardware detection is complete,
Windows will prompt you to begin the initialization
process.
• Windows Vista/7/8/10 users will see an AutoPlay
window similar to the one in Figure 2.2.
Step 2. Select the option ‘Run Sentry3FIPS.exe’
If Windows does not AutoPlay, you can browse to the
CD-ROM partition (Figure 2.3) and manually execute
the Sentry 3 FIPS program. This will also start the
initialization process.
Figure 2.2 – AutoPlay Window
(Note: Menu options in the AutoPlay
window may vary depending on
what programs are currently
installed on your computer.
AutoRun will start the initialization
process automatically.)

DEVICE INITIALIZATION (Windows Environment)
Sentry 3 FIPS can be initialized one of two ways: Stand-alone or managed. Upon
running DataLocker.exe you will be prompted to create a user password.
1. Select a password. Non-managed and stand-alone drives will require a
password with the following criteria (Figure 3.1):
Minimum of eight (8) characters, including 1 upper-case, 1 lower-case, & 1 digit
Note: Managed drives will
require passwords that meet
the criteria set forth in the
policy of the SafeConsole
server.
Figure 3.1 – Confirm Password
2. Once a password has been selected (and it meets the specified criteria),
you must enter it a second time in the 'Confirm Password' text box to ensure
proper entry.
3. Click the checkbox to accept the warranty statement.
4. Click [Confirm] to complete initialization.

DEVICE USAGE (Windows Environment)
With each insertion of the Sentry 3 FIPS, you will be prompted to enter the password
created during the initialization process (Figure 4.1). During the login process, if an
invalid password is entered (Figure 4.2), you will be given another opportunity to
enter the correct password; note that there is a built-in security feature that tracks
the number of invalid login attempts and if this number reaches the pre-configured
value of 10 (maximum number of invalid logins), the Sentry 3 FIPS will lock the user
out and require a device reset. Figure 4.3
(Note: Prior to locking the device with 10 invalid password attempts, the login
counter will reset with a successful login.)
