Configuring SecureCRT/FX for 2FA using RSA SecurID tokens

Hello guys!

I'm new to my organization and they want to implement 2FA authentication using RSA tokens.

We use SecureCRT to access over 30 switches and what we want to avoid using 2FA on each individual switch. Can SecureCRT be configured to use RSA tokens to authenticate? If so, how?

Thank you in advance!

Hi a.tejeda03,

Likely the only configuration change you need to make in SecureCRT is to move Keyboard-Interactive to the top of the Authentication grouping in the Connection / SSH2 category of Session Options.

You can employ the power of editing the Default session to make this change to all of your existing and future sessions. Here are some links to tips and a video that provide more details about using the Default session to make mass changes to multiple sessions:
Since you would be making a change that affects many sessions, the recommendation is to export your config as a backup as a best practice. That can be done from the Tools menu (Export Settings), you would just specify an XML file where the info should be exported.
