RSA unveils SecurID Software Token for iPhone

updated 05:10 pm EDT, Wed July 22, 2009

Secure iPhone App launches

EMC's security division, RSA, has launched the RSA SecurID Software Token for iPhone, enabling an Apple handheld to be used as a SecurID authenticator. It works in conjunction with a SecurID token seed -- and RSA's Authentication Manager software -- to provide a one-time password that changes every 60 seconds, creating a secure access point. A single tap enables the program, using a unique token seed provided by a person's IT organization.

Transporting the authenticator on an iPhone provides an easier access point for enterprise users, who can be away from their desks and still access secure software. SecurID tokens can be revoked and automatically redeployed if an iPhone is lost, eliminating the need for replacement tokens.

The SecurID Software Token app is available at no charge from the App Store, but the required SecurID token seed must be bought from RSA. An organization must also have Authentication Manager installed.
