Myth 4: Dispelling The Myths around Software Tokens

Video created by RSA Link Team Employee on Mar 2, 2017

    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.
