RSA SecurID Token Phase-Out Effort NEW

Collection Dates/Times: Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location: Room 4G76
Contact: Jeff Anderson, 358-1348 Image of SecurID Token
As part of a strategic objective to enhance PIV smartcard usage, the Information Technology and Communications Division (ITCD) is continuing the effort to reduce the number of RSA SecurID Tokens at NASA HQ in phases. The ultimate goal is to resolve all exceptions (i.e., the technical need to use a token) and eliminate tokens altogether. This will provide cost savings to HQ, ensure compliancy with federal mandates for improved security, and allow users to take advantage of advanced technologies available. Future efforts will focus on how your smartcard replaces the need for tokens and how smartcard options are being enabled for the exception categories to support the elimination of tokens. All HQ personnel are encouraged to turn in tokens that are no longer utilized. Visit the HQ Token Phase-Out Project Web page for details.
