I know that MARS can now be used with Cisco TACACS to authenticate end users to the MARS box. Can MARS also be used with RSA SecurID tokens?

There is no option to integrate the MARS for RSA SecureID authentication directly. But I belive you can do it thru AAA server

You are correct Andrea. I have set it up both ways and they both work. If you redirect MARS to Cisco ACS then you can proxy auth to just about anything ACS supports (e.g. Tokens, Active Directory, etc).

Officially, MARS has been tested with ACS, ISA, and Steel Belted RADIUS.

MARS doesn't care what is on the back end for authentication so if it's a supported authentication system for the back end on ACS, ISA, or Steel Belted then you are good to go. Token Servers, LDAP, AD, and more can be supported this way.

Outside of those three, your mileage may vary.
