API authentication with Bot account (RPA)

Has anyone leveraged RSA SecurID API authentication to provide strong authentication for RPA (Robotic Process Automation) Bots?


As RPA technologies continues to grow, bot accounts are becoming more widely used to access MFA protected resources. Since these are automated processes running, there are obvious challenges with MFA. I'm looking for a way to maintain MFA to applications, yet allow the RPA process to continue to access the resources through strong authentication. Many times people are putting exceptions in place to allow bot accounts to access applications/systems through the UI without strong authentication.


I'm looking to see if anyone has built anything to accomplish this scenario.
