LaserJet printers provide different means of secure printing using smart cards, PIN (Personal Identification Number)

etc. Print jobs secured with a PIN can be stored as a temporary or permanent file on the printer. With the current

behavior on LaserJet Printers, if the user submits a PIN print job and forgets the pin, then the user can neither print

the job nor delete the job. When the job resides as a permanent file, factory reset is only the option to remove the

file from the printer. This paper presents a way to regenerate the PIN in a secure way to enable the user to retrieve

the print file. This also reduces the need to factory reset to delete stored print files with forgotten PIN.
