I am trying to setup Secure Store Server and after successfully creating the Service and the Proxy I am greeted with this error when I attempt to manage it.

Cannot complete this action as the Secure Store Shared Service is not responding. Please contact your administrator.

The Event Viewer displays this error.

Any ideas?

Logon to Central Administration.

Click Application Management > Manage Service Applications.

Click Secure Store Service and then click Permission in Ribbon. Add System Account and set Full Control.
