[RSA] SecurID Software token – BB 10 – 1.1 (1/2)


To use the app, you must import a software token. The app generates a new tokencode every 60 or 30 seconds.

You use the current tokencode to access resources protected by SecurID, for example, your corporate VPN.
If your software token requires a SecurID PIN, you use a PIN combined with the tokencode, which is a passcode.
The tokencode or passcode is your one-time password (OTP).

This document describes how to install the RSA SecurID app and import and use a software token. You can install
the app in your work space, personal space, or both. You can import up to 10 software tokens to your work space
and up to 10 to your personal space. You must import tokens one at a time.

Install the RSA SecurID App

Email Your Device ID

With respect to your organization/institution security policies you might be required to authorize the handheld device. One of the methods to do so is to use Device ID. It’s a unique value generated within the RSA SecurID app which binds the software token to your device to ensure that the software token cannot be used on another device.

One of the methods to do so is to ask the user to email his Device ID:

On the Welcome screen of the RSA SecureID app, tap Device ID.


This opens an email containing the device ID in the message field.


You want now to populate TO field with respective SD distribution group responsible of RSA operations.

That’s it for now, please follow this next article that cover actual import methods:
