How to configure Two-Factor Authentication for user logins with RSA SecurID?

ADSelfService Plus protects user accounts from identity thefts with its Two-Factor Authentication security methods. Apart from the conventional username and password authentication, it allows users to authenticate their accounts with three advanced OTP methods, viz., SMS and email based verification codes, duo security authentication, and RSA SecurID.

Two-Factor Authentication via RSA SecurID

When two-factor authentication using RSA SecurID is enabled, during every login, users will be prompted for RSA SecurID passcodes after their domain credentials are validated. This passcode can be a security code generated by RSA SecurID mobile app or a hardware token or a security token received in their mobile or email. Users will be granted access to ADSelfService Plus, only when their passcodes are validated by RSA Authentication Manager.
