RSA SecureID ONLY suported via CiscoSecure ACS?

I have an Ascend NavisRadius server that authenticates SOME users using "ordinary" password and SOME using SecurID tokens.

I've configured a Cisco 2600 to provide another access point to our network.

Radius authentications works perfectly for "ordinary" passwords but fails if SecurID authentication is requested (Password="ACE" on user record).

Debugging radius, I see Radius and Ace server exchange user and token details, but a "password incorrect" message is always (or almost..) returned by Ace machine.

The same user is authenticated correctly if the access with the token is done via the Ascend NAS.

Since Radius and Ace servers pass each other the SAME USER RECORD when both Cisco and Ascend routers request authentication, there must be some parameter to be specified at Radius-server or AAA level in the 2600 that makes work the record exchange.

Useless to say, I've tried a lot of parameters and attributes combinations and I've read the article in

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance,


P.S. In a previous post i've read that RSA SecureID is suported via CiscoSecure ACS. Is it the ONLY CHOICE?

Re: RSA SecureID ONLY suported via CiscoSecure ACS?


I had to install new image c2600-c-mz.123-3.bin (previous was c2600-is-mz.122-11.T2.bin), so CiscoSecure is not the only ACS to support RSA SecurID tokens
