An RSA SecurID software token is a software-based security token that resides on a computer, or other device, such as an iPhone, Android-based cell phone, or BlackBerry. Once installed, the SecurID software generates tokencodes, which are displayed on the screen of the device.
Distributing a software token is a different process than distributing a hardware token. Because a software token is installed on a device and cannot be mailed, distribution is electronic, and involves generating a token file and delivering the token file to the user.
