Test Your SecurID Token
All NASA HQ Employees
May 5, 2009
All Headquarters employees are asked to test the functionality of their SecurID token by May 8, 2009. This will ensure you are prepared for upcoming Continuity of Operations exercises and are able to access NASA resources, such as WebTADS, remotely.
A SecurID token is a portable device with two-factor authentication allowing you to access resources remotely via the Virtual Private Network (VPN) or using Secure Nomadic Access (SNA). You should contact the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) if you do not have a SecurID token; have forgotten your PIN; or your token has not been activated, has been lost, or is not functioning properly.
