When you configure RSA SecurID server, you must add the VMware Identity Manager service information as the authentication agent on the RSA SecurID server and configure the RSA SecurID server information on the VMware Identity Manager service.

When you configure SecurID to provide additional security, you must ensure that your network is properly configured for your VMware Identity Manager deployment. For SecurID specifically, you must ensure that the appropriate port is open to enable SecurID to authenticate users outside your network.

After you run the VMware Identity Manager Setup wizard and configured your Active Directory connection, you have the information necessary to prepare the RSA SecurID server. After you prepare the RSA SecurID server for VMware Identity Manager, you enable SecurID in the administration console.

The RSA SecurID server must be configured with information about the VMware Identity Manager appliance as the authentication agent. The information required is the host name and the IP addresses for network interfaces.

After the VMware Identity Manager appliance is configured as the authentication agent in the RSA SecurID server, you must add the RSA SecurID configuration information to the connector.
