Using SecurID for Application Server Authentication

As well as using SecurID to authenticate users to SGD, you can use SecurID for application server authentication when launching X and character applications.

To use SecurID authentication, ensure that users can log in to the application server using SecurID before introducing SGD. When you are ready to use SecurID authentication, configure the application object to use the securid.exp login script.

When logging in to an application server that uses SecurID authentication, users enter a user name but leave the password field blank. When they click OK, they are prompted for a passcode.

In the SGD Administration Console on the Global Settings » Application Authentication tab, deselect the Password Cache Usage check box. This prevents SGD from using SGD login details when logging in to the application server.
