Logging in with valid PIN with compound in-band authentication

You can log in to a CICS® CESL transaction with a valid PIN. Your administrator must have configured your account for IBM® MFA Compound In-Band. This use case requires a hardware token with a PINpad.


Perform the following steps:

  1. Begin to log in to a CICS CESL transaction with your user name.
  2. Enter your PIN in the SecurID token and generate a passcode.
  3. Enter the 6- to 8-digit passcode displayed by the SecurID token, followed by the separator, followed by your passphrase or password 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.
  4. Leave the New Password field empty.
  5. Press Enter.
