RSA Security Offers to Replace Most SecurID Tokens
“RSA Security on Monday offered to replace its SecurID tokens for most of its 40 million users as it tries to regain customer confidence after prominent hacking attacks.
Arthur W. Coviello, the company’s executive chairman, made the offer in a letter posted on the company’s Web site. Most Fortune 500 companies and government agencies supply the electronic tokens to employees who need access to computer networks from customer offices, hotels or homes. The tokens generate random numbers for use in remote log-ins. “
