RSA SecurID software tokens support the same algorithms as the vendor's SecurID hardware authenticators, including the industry-standard AES algorithm. Instead of being stored in an RSA SecurID hardware authenticator, the symmetric key (or seed record) is safeguarded securely on the user's desktop, laptop, PDA, handheld, or mobile phone.

RSA SecurID symmetric keys may also be stored on smart card and USB devices and used in conjunction with the RSA SecurID software token on the user's desktop. This ensures end users have a number of versatile options to reduce the number of items a user has to manage for safe and secure access to corporate assets.

RSA SecurID software tokens offer strong two-factor authentication in a highly secure software implementation, and support for a wide range of computing platforms and devices. It offers flexibility for authentication models and policies, with support for up to 10 software tokens on one device. It is an ideal solution for consumer-facing companies and enterprises looking to secure access to Web resources for customers, employees and partners.

IBM Tivoli Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On

This software automatically manages passwords, easing the security vulnerability created when employees select their own passwords, write them down on paper or store them electronically. Employees authenticate once, and the software then detects and responds to all password-related sign-on events to automate every password management task for the employee including: logon, password selection, password change, and password reset. It can help users deliver single sign-on for all Microsoft applications, client/server applications, Web applications, Java applications, host emulators including IBM AS/400 (5250), IBM OS/390 (3270) and Unix (telnet), in-house developed applications, and host-based mainframe applications.
Distributed by IBM. RRP: Pricing for the TAM ESSO base component supporting Single Sign-On and password wallet begins at $33,915 per 250 users. Additional components add costs of about $6000 per 250 users per adapter.
