TTLS supports tunneling using token cards such as SecurID or Secure Computing's SafeWord. You can pass a username and a token code to the two-factor authentication server.


As an example, RSA has certified the use of Funk's Odyssey TTLS client with the ACE Server and SecurID. (See RSA's page for details, as well as the Implementation Guide with the details.)
