You can define your RSA server as an AAA server of type 'sdi' and use it to authenticate your VPN users just like a RADIUS or LDAP server.

*** RSA does not use a PSK, it downloads an encrypted *.sdi file on first connect
aaa-server RSA_VPN protocol sdi
aaa-server RSA_VPN host <primary>
aaa-server RSA_VPN host <backup>

Then set your tunnel group to authenticate against the RSA server(s):

tunnel-group rsa_ra_vpn general-attributes
authentication-server-group RSA_VPN

SDI Server Support

The security appliance can use RSA SecureID servers for VPN authentication. These servers are also known as SDI servers. When a user attempts to establish VPN access and the applicable tunnel-group record specifies a SDI authentication server group, the security appliance sends to the SDI server the username and one-time password and grants or denies user access based on the response from the server.
