    software tokens????

    Advertisement



    I was in my options and in security options and I noticed software tokens. I opened it and it said no tokens installed. So my question is what are software tokens?

    Thanks

    Re: software tokens????

    From the BB KB Article: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/searc...00%20101112610

    Environment
    • BlackBerry® smartphones



    Details

    Token-based credentials are network security credentials that use a token formed by combining a unique identifier, called a seed token, and another variable. Successful network authentication requires a valid token.
    There are two different types of token-based credentials: hardware tokens and software tokens. Hardware tokens are tokens generated by a physical device separate from the network client device and software tokens are generated by software residing on the network client device.
    The RSA SecurID® Library (a cryptographic library) on the BlackBerry smartphone periodically generates a software token for network authentication.
