Patch 9 allows users to authenticate to applications using biometrics available on their devices, such as Apple Touch ID or Face ID, Android fingerprint, or Windows Hello. This feature is available if you use the Security Console wizard to connect RSA Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service. For instructions, see Connect RSA Authentication Manager to the Cloud Authentication Service.
Patch 9 resolves an issue that prevents users from authenticating to deployments running RSA Authentication Manager 8.4 Patch 8 from the following agents if they are configured to use the special, non-default TCP mode:
If you are using one of the specified agents in TCP mode, apply Patch 9.
Only these agents are impacted and only when configured to use TCP mode authentication. These agents (and all other RSA SecurID agents) are NOT impacted when using the normal UDP or REST mode authentication. Agents based on the RSA Authentication API for Java version 8.5.x or 8.6.x are NOT impacted, even if they are configured to use the TCP mode.
