OPIEKEY(1) General Commands Manual OPIEKEY(1)
opiekey, otp-md4, otp-md5 - Programs for computing responses to OTP challenges.
opiekey | otp-md4 | otp-md5 [-v] [-h] [-f] [-x]
[-t type ] [-4|-5] [-a] [-n count ] sequence_number seed
opiekey takes the optional count of the number of responses to print along with a (maximum) sequence number and seed as command line args.
It prompts for the user's secret pass phrase and produces an OPIE response as six words. If compiled to do so, it can prompt for the user's
secret pass phrase twice to help reduce errors due to mistypes. The second password entry can be circumvented by entering only an end of
line. opiekey is downward compatible with the key(1) program from the Bellcore S/Key Version 1 distribution and several of its variants.
-v Display the version number and compile-time options, then exit.
-h Display a brief help message and exit.
-4, -5 Selects MD4 or MD5, respectively, as the response generation algorithm. The default for otp-md4 is MD4 and the default for opie-md5
is MD5. The default for opiekey depends on compile-time configuration, but should be MD5. MD4 is compatible with the Bellcore S/Key
Version 1 distribution.
-f Force opiekey to continue, even where it normally shouldn't. This is currently used to force opiekey to operate in even from termi-
nals it believes to be insecure. It can also allow users to disclose their secret pass phrases to attackers. Use of the -f flag
may be disabled by compile-time option in your particular build of OPIE.
-a Allows you to input an arbitrary secret pass phrase, instead of running checks against it. Arbitrary currently does not include '
