RSA  SecurID now available for Windows Phone

A win for enterprise as RSA SecurID now available for Windows Phone

We heard rumours of this app being in development as far back as early last year but it is now available to download for Windows Phone. RSA securID tokens should be familiar to many who work remotely, they allow business to secure access to their systems.

The app is an important addition to the business credentials Windows Phone now exhibits as a platform for work and play. Having the token on a users smartphone allows IT departments to stop giving out expensive hardware fobs to its mobile workers. The app is compatible with devices running Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8. Read on to find out more.

RSA SecurID has been on the Windows Phone Store since mid-last month and is still in its version 1.0 guise.  The app is free to download but you’ll need to contact your workplace admin or helpdesk to assist in getting it all set up. As with all tokens of this type once the backend configuration is done by your workplace IT dept. it will work in a similar way to the physical fob you used in the past.

Here is what they have to say about the release

"Make your Windows Phone device a convenient, cost-effective RSA SecurID® authenticator. RSA SecurID two-factor authentication is based on something you have (an authenticator) and something you know (a PIN) — providing a much more reliable level of user authentication than reusable, easy-to-guess passwords. This app, when provided with a software token, generates one-time passwords for accessing network resources.  After downloading and installing the app on your mobile device, contact your IT administrator for instructions on how to get your unique RSA SecurID Software Token Record. The application will not generate one-time passwords without completing this step."

Here is a list of features of the app

  • Strong two-factor authentication to protected services
  • Support for up to 10 RSA SecurID tokens per device
  • Application available for download through the Windows Phone Store
  • Support for Dynamic Seed Provisioning (CT-KIP) (Requires RSA Authentication Manager 7.1)
  • Support for copying the tokencode/passcode
  • Support for software tokens that emulate the authentication experience of users with RSA SecurID Hardware Authenticators
  • Support for file-based provisioning using RSA SecurID Software Token Converter
  • Support for Landscape mode
  • Note: Requires 128-bit (AES) software tokens. No support for 64-bit (SID) software tokens.

The adoption of Windows Phone in business is still a key area where Microsoft and its partners can gain more market share. Apps like this are essential for the platform to be taken seriously and form an important milestone for the platform as it matures.

We’d like to hear from you if you’re a remote worker and using this app and also from any Sys Admins out there who are thinking of pushing this out to workers. Let us know in comments below.

You can download the app from the Windows Phone Store here or scan the QR code below.

Nice!!  Now I just need to see if the Security Gods will allow this...

robert brand says:

Be sure to offer said Gods chocolates and praise. Normally works! :)

Sweet.  I have to keep my GS3 plugged in at home to run the RSA app on there when I need to use it.   
It looks like in order to allow WP, the RSA admin needs to import a definition file into the system, not sure how involved that will be.

Great news! Let me check with our tech director if i can get a soft token pushed on my wp7.5..

spikygasby says:

Wow, that's so great. I use RSA token everyday on my PC. Now I can do it on mobile :D

FusionDawg says:

It would be nice if it were possible to import the token via the stid file and not URL.

Bkr11 says:

I was really looking forward to this previously, but instead opted to go with the PC version since I don't share corporate laptops/pc's outside of our network.  Nice to know that if this changes I'll have access to a WP version that can reside on WP8. 

FusionDawg says:

To get the token to import, you will need to download TokenConverter 2.6.1 from EMC. It's a command line tool that takes your sdtid file and converts it to the format that is accepted by the SecurID app.

Techno-Freak says:

Fill this form, you'll get the download link in the document that you download after the form submission:

Geordan Reid says:

Similar issue as above, the link in the documentation does not work. Opening the link in file explorer, the folder appears empty, can browse up and into other folders but the agents folder is clear.
has anyone else been able to download the convertor tool?

rangu says:

Sweet so sweet. Thank you
now don't need to look at old,iPhone

Hey guys :) I use another app for remote access with WP8 - it doesn't require installation, works through the browser and has very easy access:
