Comment(by caldazar):

 I'm just going to detail my findings, I'll start using my username so my
 posts don't clash with the other anonymous posters who may have different

 I can authenticate with SecurID using the current stable version of
 Cyberduck - version 3.4.2 (5902).

 My setup with SecurID, means I connect to the server using ssh -l
 [username] [host] and then the server responds requesting PASSCODE.
 Cyberduck thinks this request is for the password so I can enter my
 SecurID and authenticate.

 I mentioned in a post above that I need to authenticate every 60 seconds
 once my SecurID had expired. I've found this to be wrong. Upon testing,
 the connection works fine - navigating folders works etc. Problems occur
 when I attempt to transfer a file. Upon transferring a file, Cyberduck
 appears to attempt to reauthenticate to start the file transfer process.
 This means I need to enter a new SecurID everytime a file is opened or
 transferred, which makes the process unusable as I work with many files
 each session.
