Managing Your RSA SecureID
Security built on static, reusable passwords has proven to be easy for hackers to beat. A recent recommendation by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) makes this very clear: two-factor authentication is recommended to minimize identity theft.
You can rest easy knowing that all of the data in your Nightingale Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Practice Management system is secured through RSA SecurID a leading two-factor identification system. It is very easy for you to manage your RSA fob and PINs,all you have to do is select your user status.

What is RSA?
The RSA SecurID® solution is the world's leading two-factor user authentication system, relied on by over 20,000 of organizations worldwide to protect valuable network resources. It is based on something that you know (a password or PIN) and something that you have (an authenticator) and provides a much more reliable level of user authentication than reusable passwords.
SecurID relies on a "token" -- a piece of hardware assigned to you that generates an authentication code every sixty seconds using a built-in clock and the token's factory-encoded random key (the "seed"). Of course the token is tamper resistant to deter reverse engineering.
A user authenticating to a network resource -- such as the Nightingale Electronic Medical Records and Practice Management system -- needs to enter both their PIN and the number being displayed at that moment on their SecurID token. The server, which also has a real-time clock and a database of valid tokens with their associated seeds, computes what number the token is supposed to be showing at that moment in time, checks it against what the user entered, and makes the decision to allow or deny access.
