Sure, but what a royal pain to use.
The current Cisco IPSec client I'm using appears to send the user
password with the SecurID parameter appended to it. That seems like
a reasonable solution. But ideally IPSec should have a way of
dealing with the three standard security pieces--something I know,
something I have and something I am.
