Using eToken and Securid for authentication

Unanswered Question
Jun 25th, 2009


We plan to migrate from the RSA/SecurID to Aladdin eToken PRO Smartcard, I'm wondering if it is possible to have both authentication methods running on an VPN Concentrator 3000 for the time of the migration?


I have this problem too.

Using the Aladdin "R2" model etoken, certain functions can be performed using the certificate even after the R2 token has been detached from the system (USB port). The VPN Client, for instance, can perform an IKE rekey without the token attached to the system. The reason for this is the design of the "R2" etoken: it does not contain the RSA key functions needed and must upload the private key to the system for these functions.

In contrast, the Aladdin "PRO" etoken must be connected to the USB port during an IKE rekey, otherwise the VPN Client connection terminates. This is Aladdin's problem; it is not a VPN Client problem.
