In Advanced Auth 8.0. Below is from installation instructions:
Important! Do not use "-r" option with the installer executable to generate a response file to be used for silent installation. Only the default properties file that comes with initial installation should be used.

It would be great if the -r option is supported to generate the properties file, instead of doing a complete installation initially.

If you run the installer using the “-?” flag, it gives following instructions:
Usage: CA-StrongAuthentication-8.0-Linux-Installer [-f <path_to_installer_proper
ties_file> | -options]
            (to execute the installer)

where options include:
            show this help text
    -i [swing | console | silent]
            specify the user interface mode for the installer
            specify installer properties
    -r <path_to_generate_response_file>
            Generates response file.
The options field may also include the following in case of uninstaller
if it is enabled for Maintenance Mode
    -add <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
            Add Specified Features
    -remove <feature_name_1> [<feature_name_2 ...]
            Remove Specified Features
            Repair Installation
