Logging in with a fob-style hardware token
You can log in to z/OSMF with a valid PIN. Your administrator must have configured your account for IBM® MFA Compound In-Band. This use case requires a fob-style hardware token.
Perform the following steps:
- Begin to log in to z/OSMF with your user name.
- Get the 6- to 8-digit token code displayed by the SecurID token.
Enter your PIN followed by the 6- to 8-digit token code displayed by the SecurID token,
followed by the separator, followed by your passphrase or password in the Password
field. For example, assume the separator is the colon (:). If your PIN is 4321, your token code is
456789, and your password is 12345678, enter 4321456789:12345678 in the Password field.
Note: Your security administrator can reverse the order in which you enter the credentials, so that you enter your passphrase or password first, followed by the separator. Consult your security administrator for guidance.
- Press Enter.
