RSA Secure ID SMS HTTP Gateway

RSA Authentication Manager can be configured to utilize TXTImpact SMS Gateway for delivery of on-demand
token codes to be used in on-demand authentications.

When a user authenticates to an agent using his/her username and on-demand PIN, the RSA
Authentication Manager sends the on-demand tokencode and mobile number to Wire2Air SMS Gateway
using the HTTP or HTTPS protocol.

TXTImpact SMS Gateway then delivers the on-demand tokencode to
the user’s mobile device via Short Message Service (SMS).

The authentication process is completed
when the user enters the on-demand token code into the agent’s prompt for next token code.

SMS HTTP Plug-In Configuration

RSA Authentication Manager can be configured to integrate a supported Short Message Service (SMS)
provider using HTTP, HTTPS, or XML-over-HTTP to deliver on-demand tokencodes to a user’s mobile
phone.

Important:

HTTP connections are not secure.

Sensitive information, such as a token codes, may be exposed.

For secure connections, configure
HTTPS.

Before configuring the HTTP Plug-In, you must locate the configuration parameters and base URL.
