Rsa Securid App

Posted By admin On 02/09/21

Hardware or software key fobs are available for people who need to log into servers in the Extra Tier and for some high-security applications.

The RSA SecurID Software Token software is a free download from RSA. Because software tokens have a 10-year life span, there also is less time and effort associated with managing fobs. And since the software token functions similarly to a hardware token, user training is minimal. The new SecurID app will be an upgrade from the existing RSA SecurID Software Token app. Develop Custom Apps with the New Mobile SDK Your organization will be able to develop its own custom mobile app with full control over the user experience, including the app look and feel, to provide users with secure and seamless authentication.

SecuridAppleNote: This page explains how to use a software token. If you're using a hardware key fob, see the Hardware Key Fob instructions.

For Non-Cornell Employees Only

If you are not a Cornell employee, follow these steps before setting up your software token.

  1. Activate your Cornell NetID.
  2. Install and connect to CU VPN. Use the following credentials:
  3. Confirm that your IP address is 10.17.29.x

Using the Cornell VPN and your cit.roc credentials ensures that you connect to a server farm network that is protected by Cornell's firewalls.

Complete this procedure only once during initial setup. Prince purple rain song.

Your unit or area manager will request a soft token from Systems Support for you. You will receive an email from Systems Support that includes both a soft token and a Cornell Secure File Transfer link to your RSA SecurID phone app password.

  1. Download the RSA SecurID app from the app store for your device.
  2. Retrieve the password via Cornell Secure File Transfer. You'll need to retrieve this password on your device during the setup of your RSA SecurID app. It is used only once during the initial setup.

Create Your PIN

Complete this procedure only once during initial setup. You must be on a campus network or connected to CU VPN.

  1. Open the RSA SecurID app on your device and tap Import Token.
  2. Enter the soft token you received in an email from Systems Support. It looks like a URL and starts with http://127.0.0.1/securid. Depending on the type of device you're using, you may be able to click the link in the email or copy and paste the soft token.
  3. When prompted to enter a password, enter the password that was sent to you through Cornell Secure File Transfer.
  4. When prompted to enter a PIN, enter 0000. The app generates a code. You'll need this code in step 8.
  5. Use Remote Desktop to connect to this server: hopperrdp.cit.cornell.edu.
  6. Enter your NetID and password when prompted.
    Note: If you don't see the Cornell domain, your username is cornellnetid. The password is your Cornell NetID password.
  7. Click the RSA SecurID logo.
  8. In Username, enter your NetID.
    In Passcode, enter the code that was generated when you entered 0000 in the RSA SecurID app.
    Note: This is a temporary passcode used only when you're creating your PIN.
  9. Set a PIN when prompted. Enter a numeric PIN from 4-8 digits, and then click Finish.
    This is the PIN you will enter in the RSA SecurID app on your phone in the future.
  10. In the RSA SecurID app on your device, press Back until you are prompted for the PIN, and then enter the PIN you just created. The RSA SecurID app will display a passcode.
  11. On your computer, you should see the login prompt again.
    In User name, enter your NetID.
    In Passcode, enter the passcode from the RSA Secure ID app.
    Note: You can only use the number that the SecurID app displays once.
  12. The first time you log in, you will be prompted to enter your Windows password. Click OK.
  13. In Password, enter your password from the Cornell domain. (For most people, this is your NetID password.)
    Note: You should only see this prompt the first time you log into a SecurID system.

It may take a minute or two for the system to create your new profile. When it finishes, you'll be logged in and ready to RDP to your servers. To RDP to a server, click Start, then Accessories, then Remote Desktop Connections. You can drag and drop to make this a shortcut on your remote desktop as shown in the following image.
