Secure ID can be set up for VPN in the following manner: (there may be other
ways as well)
1) VPN gateway is connected to internet
2) SecureID ACE server is set up on internal network
3) VPN gateway is told to pass authentication to the ACE server

Client connects to the gateway, conversation takes place between the gateway
and the ACE server, gateway grants access to client.

This does work with several popular VPN gateway products.

To some extent this depends what you're intending to use for your VPN.
The SecurID server can be configured to handle RADIUS authentication,
so any VPN software that can do RADIUS can do SecurID.
