Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite can validate current token pass-codes using either a RADIUS service or using the RSA Authentication Manager connector, installed on the Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite server. Users can sign into Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite with this form of authentication, rather than passwords, security questions, etc.
Hitachi ID Identity and Access Management Suite can manage RSA SecurID tokens, with operations such as clear PIN, PIN reset, enable or disable token, set or clear emergency access mode and clock synchronization. These operations are available both in self-service web or interactive voice response (IVR) or to a support technician.
For RSA ACE servers with version numbers earlier than 7.0 SecurID token management depends on an administrative API (apidemon) which is only available locally on the RSA Authentication Manager. As a result, a local Password Manager connector is mandatory on the RSA Authentication Manager. This connector is available for Windows, Solaris and HPUX.
For RSA ACE 7.0 and later RSA introduced a secure remote API to perform these functions and as such no Hitachi software need be installed on the SecurID server.
