Added support for Smart Card (X.509) authentication

The option is included in all new deployments. Existing deployments have to update Federated Sign-In module to the latest published version.
Added account management support for Solaris OS and VMWare ESXi devices
The update adds Password Reset Remote Solaris User script to reset password for non-root user on Solars OS using Unix Host record type. The update also adds Password Reset Remote Solaris Root script to reset password for root user on Solaris OS using Unix Host with SU record type when the root access is restricted from the remote locations.
The update also adds Password Reset Remote VMWare ESXi script to reset password on VMWare ESXi devices.
Added regular expressions, exception processing and switch user support for Interactive SSH scripts
The update adds the option to specify regular expressions in the expectation part of Interactive SSH script element to support multiple possible conditions or complex parsing of device prompt. Use \rREGEXP in place of input element to make the script to parse input element as a regular expression.
The update also added the option for conditional termination of Interactive SSH job execution sequence in response to specified errors in the remote device output. Use the optional third element in the expected-input->output->error1,error2,error3 triplet to specify exit condition for the script execution.
