NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for skeyinit (netbsd section 1)

SKEYINIT(1)			   BSD General Commands Manual			      SKEYINIT(1)

     skeyinit -- change password or add user to S/Key authentication system

     skeyinit [-sxz] [-k passphrase] [-n count] [-p password] [-t hash] [user]

     skeyinit initializes the system so you can use S/Key one-time passwords to login.	The pro-
     gram will ask you to enter a secret pass phrase; enter a phrase of several words in
     response.	After the S/Key database has been updated you can login using either your regular
     password or using S/Key one-time passwords.

     skeyinit requires you to type a secret password, so it should be used only on a secure ter-

     -k passphrase
	     Use pass phrase passphrase instead of asking for one to be entered.

     -n count
	     Start the skey(1) sequence at count (default is 100).

     -p password
	     Use password password instead of asking for one to be entered.

     -s      allows the user to set the seed and count for complete control of the parameters.
	     To do this run skeyinit in one window and put in your count and seed; then run
	     skey(1) in another window to generate the correct 6 english words for that count and
	     seed.  You can then ``cut-and-paste'' or type the words into the skeyinit window.

     -t hash
	     Selects the hash algorithm to use.  Available choices are md4 (the default), md5, or

     -x      Displays one-time password in hexadecimal instead of ASCII.

     -z      Allows the user to zero their S/Key entry.

     user    The username to be changed/added.	By default the current user is operated on, only
	     root may change other user's entries.

     /etc/skeykeys  database of information for the S/Key system.
