RSA SecurID Login

RSA SecurID uses two-factor authentication: a code you know (a PIN), and an item you have (a PIN pad, “smartcard," or software token), and then generates a one-time login code that is usable for a period of 60 seconds. After that period, the combination of the PIN and the smartcard will generate another, completely different one-time login code.
