    Re: software tokens-what is this?

    Doing some research this is what I found don't know what it means either...LOL quote:
    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.
