A PEM-data file is returned. This contains several certificates which are signed from the bottom (root certificate) to the top. The top entry is the TSE certificate.
 Perform TSE self-testPerforms a self-test of the TSE.After each power-up of the TSE, the self-test is required before you can work with the TSE again. The self-test checks if the internal module of the TSE is working properly.The printer automatically performs a self-test of the TSE each time it is turned on, so basically you do not need to perform the self-test manually. However, if the printer is used for 25 hours or more without being restarted, you must perform the self-test with this function every 25 hours.To determine the remaining time until the next required self-test – see “Time until next self-test” under “Functions without login > memory information”.The self-test takes about 120 seconds.

Registers the new security key on the TSE. The old security key of the TSE is overwritten.
The security key is required for authentication with the TSE and thus for all user, admin and host functions. This includes the functions available in this window as well as the saving of transactions (invoice data and document data) on the TSE.Database:
Do you want to store the security key in this database or do you always want to enter it together with the PIN?Please always keep the security key, regardless of whether you store it in this Lodgit Desk database, additionally in a safe place.
Without the correct security key, communication with the TSE is impossible.
The use of an incorrect security key can lead to permanent blocking of the TSE. In the event of permanent blocking, the TSE must be replaced.
