RSA SecurID Authentication Engine

The RSA SecurID Authentication Engine is a small Java based SDK that allows to validate One Time Password (Tokencodes or Passcodes) generated by a SecurID HW or SW Token.

In a nutshell it implements a subset of the Authentication Manager core functionality. Given the SAE SDK only provides functionality to validate tokencodes and import seed records, the containing application will have to :

  • Implement functionality to store and retrieve seed records from a persistence layer like a DB.
  • If needed, expose APIs to allow other services to validate token codes.

The main advantage of this SDK is the very small footprint which makes it suitable for integration in existing applications that require Two Factor Authentication and can't rely on an external system like Authentication Manager.
