opiekey, otp-md4, otp-md5 - Programs for computing responses to OTP challenges.
[-v] [-h] [-f] [-x]
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.

Display the version number and compile-time options, then exit.
Display a brief help message and exit.
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.
to continue, even where it normally shouldn't. This is currently used to
force opiekey to operate in even from terminals 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.
Allows you to input an arbitrary secret pass phrase, instead of running checks
against it. Arbitrary currently does not include ' ' or ' characters. This
can be used for backwards compatibility with key generators that do not check
the number of one time access passwords to print.
The default is one.
Output the OTPs as hexadecimal numbers instead of six words.
Generate an extended response of the specified type. Supported types are:

Reminder: Don't use opiekey from telnet or dial-in sessions.

can lull a user into revealing his/her password when remotely logged in, thus
defeating the purpose of OPIE. This is especially a problem with xterm.
implements simple checks to reduce the risk of a user making
this mistake. Better checks are needed.
