NAME
       /etc/opiekeys - OPIE database of	user key information

DESCRIPTION
       The opiekeys file contains user information  used  by
       the OPIE	software to authenticate users.	The opiekeys
       file  is	 backwards   compatible	  with	 the   S/Key
       /etc/skeykeys  database file, but only if the hashing
       algorithm (MD4 and MD5) is the same between S/Key and
       OPIE  (i.e., MD5	OPIE cannot use	MD4 S/Key keys). The
       opiekeys	file consists of  six  fields  separated  by
       spaces  (tabs  are  properly  interpreted, but spaces
       should be used instead) as follows:

       Field	     Description
       name	     User's login name.
       sequence	     User's sequence number.
       seed	     User's seed.
       key	     User's last response (hex).
       date	     Last change date.
       time	     Last change time.
