AT&T has announced the addition of soft token authentication support to AT&T Token Authentication Service, which helps mobile workers more easily protect commercial resources using software on smartphones and laptops. A soft token is the software equivalent of a traditional hardware token, which generates a one-time passcode that authenticates a user’s identity to enable highly secure access to private networks.

AT&T Token Authentication Service is based on RSA SecurID authentication solution from RSA. It is engineered to provide two-factor authentication to help protect networks and applications from access by unauthorized users and malicious hackers, while allowing authorized end-users to access virtual private networks (VPN) and remote access applications, Web servers and operating systems.

Two-factor authentication is based on a password or PIN in combination with a software authenticator providing a more secure level of user authentication than static passwords.
