There was a SecurID.diff in some older openssh releases.  It is not 
supported by the openssh team.  It was in contrib.  I am the 
maintainer.  I have been unable to keep up with the openssh 
development -- that is great in my opinion, it means forward progress!  
I can only assume that this is why the SecurID.diff has been removed 
from contrib -- I have no objections there.

Perhaps a SecurID.README could be added stating that the patches are not 
part of the main distribution and are supported maintained elsewhere and 
give the below URL.  That might be helpful to people -- then they can 
complain to me about outdated version.  I am usually pretty responsive.

The SecurID support patches are made available (as they have been) on my 
projects page:

The patch against the latest release may follow a few days after its 

2.9.9p2 patch is there now :-)  Enjoy.
