I really do not think so, since you would need a RADIUS or similar server to log into.

Gmail does not appear to have any really secure access for now.

I hope this helps !

SysExpert's right that there would need to be a server component to accept the SecurID code.  Gmail is secured with SSL, so passwords in transit shouldn't be an issue.  

The big issue would be using a guessable password.  Your best bet might be to just use a secure password (at least 12 characters with a combination of letters, numbers and special characters) and change that password often.

If you have a hard time with remembering complex passwords, you might try an encrypted password database like Password Safe (free, open source).  This makes it easy to have a different complex password for each site and automatically enter them for each site you visit.  Password Safe will even generate random, secure passwords for you.

I hope this helps.

Google Apps Enterprise (gmail for your private domain) can be integrated with RSA SecurID.
They  support SAML for SSO

However, I am not sure if there are any existing commercial offerings that give you this functionality out of the box.
