This On-Demand lab enables students to explore all available features of the RSA SecurID Access platform with minimal step-by-step instructions. Learners are presented with general suggestions and cases where they can start to populate users, create policies, and  construct other scenarios that they may not want to attempt in their production systems or explore features and functions not currently licensed to them. Experience in this lab environment can also help prepare for RSA certification.



This On-Demand lab enables students to explore RSA SecurID Access as both system administrator and end user. All available features are included in this lab environment, along with a lab guide that offers general instructions for completing some of the more commonly performed actions. Case studies are  presented to offer suggestions for configurations and scenarios to help learners get started and inspire further self-guided investigation of features and  functions. Learners access RSA University’s hands-on virtual lab environment that is equipped with a
variety of hosts to perform



  • RSA Customers
  • RSA Partners
  • RSA Internal Staff
