Off topic, but SecurID is a network authentication protocol as well. It
is not a protocol on the same level as Kerberos.
As I understand it SecurID uses encryption during the auth process.
There is a single master SecurID server and each client machines (node)
will contact it to authenticate and attempted connection from an outside
party (client). Each node has a negotiated secret with the SecurID
server. Those aren't much good for signing alone :-) So, I assume the
auth data is encrypted (and thus verified). SecurID provides one time
use passwords that expire (change) every minute.
