We are using Safeword Silver tokens with Safeword PremierAccess (now 
from Safenet, formerly from Secure Computing) to authenticate via 
Shiiboleth.  We use a custom login handler that performs the 
authentication via RADIUS, and implements a separate AuthnContext that 
applications can request if they want two-factor auth.
