summary: SecurID authentication (`securid-1@ssh.com' etc)
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: taxing: Needs external things we don't have (standards, users etc)
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Several people have asked for support for the implementation of SecurID in ssh.com's server.

While older versions of ssh.com's server used a private authentication method `securid-1@ssh.com', it appears that more recent versions use `keyboard-interactive', for which PuTTY does have support.

We haven't seen a spec for the private method, so can't implement it in PuTTY, though there's a patch to support it in OpenSSH 3.7.1p2.

(There appears to be another spec for a custom method `secure-id', although I don't believe it's ever been discussed by the SSH working group or presented as an Internet-Draft, so that method name syntax is inappropriate. I'm not aware of any servers that implement it, either.)

Audit trail for this wish.
