Provisioning of software authenticators is very difficult. Myth shattered!
Actually, it's really simple and here's why: RSA provisions software tokens one of two ways: Through file based provisioning or dynamic seed provisioning, which is a method that does not transmit any confidential information over and network and security binds a token to the device.
Sounding a bit "techie?" Let's slow it down into 1, 2, 3 easy steps.
- One download the software authenticator app.
- Two, the server generates a URL, which is sent securely through the web to you, the user.
- Three, you click on the URL and hey presto, the server and SecurID software app generates a tokencode. Easy . . . when you know how.
