RSA SecurID authentication

SecurID users authenticate by providing a user name and passcode. The passcode consists of a PIN and the current token code, which is obtained from an RSA SecurID token. If authentication is successful, the Authentication Service issues the client a session credential. At that point, a TrueSight Server Automation client application can use the session credential to establish a secure authenticated session with the Application Service or Network Shell Proxy Service identified by the service URLs in the session credential.

TrueSight Server Automation authentication can incorporate RSA's Authentication Manager to utilize its two-factor authentication mechanism. Client-tier users in TrueSight Server Automation are correlated to identities maintained within RSA's Authentication Manager rather than the central Application Server RBAC-based database.
