[RSA] SecurID Software token – introduction

Overview

RSA SecurID Software token technology allows authentication using popular mobile devices such as:

  • iPhone/iPad
  • BlackBerry
  • Android
  • Windows Phone

It eases some of the logistic aspects of token distribution and offers couple of new features unavailable to standard Key Fob such as:

  • next code
  • multiple tokens on a device

Typical provisioning process is illustrated in the following YouTube clip:

Provisioning methods

  • administrator initiates the provisioning of the Software Token
  • user completes the request
  • user requests token via Self-Service portal
  • administrator approves
  • user finishes the request
