The SecurID PIN is conceptually similar to a PIN that the user might use for financial transactions. It is a number that only the user knows that helps to identify the user.

The Personal Identification Number (PIN) is a unique 4-8 digit identifier that only the user knows. The PIN can be of the user's choosing, or system-generated by RSA Authentication Manager depending on the RSA token policy. If the user creates their own PIN, they should follow the locally established rules for creating a valid PIN, such as the number of characters and the reuse policy.

The RSA security administrator can clear and reset the PIN and the user's current PIN becomes invalid.
