Download Central

Download Central shares login information with RSA Link, but they are different websites with different functions.  For example, licenses are available for download from Download Central, as are files that are too large to host on RSA Links, such as full kit installers.  While there are download files hosted on RSA Link, tehy are much smaller (RSA Authentication Agents, for example). 

To download files from Download Central, you first must login to RSA Link.  This allows us to link your user ID to a registered license.  

Please note that Download Central and RSA Link share the same login information (email address as user ID), PIN, and security questions.

For any queries related to Download Central, such as issues with obtaining your license or if you can't find your product's full installer, please open a ticket for the licensing team:
  1. Login to RSA Link.
