RSA, Verisign forge partnership
RSA, EMC’s security division, has teamed up with Verisign to provide companies with the mutual benefit of an expanded VeriSign Identity Protection (VIP) Authentication Service through the RSA SecurID two-factor authentication technology for more choice in one-time password (OTP) authentication.
VeriSign plans to complete the integration of the RSA SecurID Authentication Engine into the VIP Authentication Service by the end of December.
This will enable VIP customers to use RSA SecurID hardware authenticators.
By then, VeriSign will also resell RSA SecurID hardware tokens to VIP prospects and customers, while RSA will resell the VIP Authentication Service to its prospects and customers.
