NAME
otp - One-Time Passwords SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require otp ?1.0.0? ::otp::otp-md4 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-md5 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-sha1 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-rmd160 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package is an implementation in Tcl of the One-Time Password system as described in RFC 2289 (1). This system uses message-digest algorithms to sequentially hash a passphrase to create single-use passwords. The resulting data is then provided to the user as either hexadecimal digits or encoded using a dictionary of 2048 words. This system is used by OpenBSD for secure login and can be used as a SASL mechanism for authenticating users. In this implementation we provide support for four algorithms that are included in the tcllib distribution: MD5 (2), MD4 (3), RIPE-MD160 (4) and SHA-1 (5). COMMANDS
::otp::otp-md4 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-md5 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-sha1 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data ::otp::otp-rmd160 ?-hex? ?-words? -seed seed -count count data EXAMPLES
