OPIEPASSWD(1)           FreeBSD General Commands Manual          OPIEPASSWD(1)

NAME
       opiepasswd -  Change or set a user's password for the
       OPIE authentication system.

SYNOPSIS
       opiepasswd [-v] [-h] [-c|-d] [-f]
       [-n initial_sequence_number ] [-s seed ] [ user_name
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       opiepasswd will initialize the system information to
       allow one to use OPIE to login.  opiepasswd is
       downward compatible with the keyinit(1) program from
       the Bellcore S/Key Version 1 distribution.

OPTIONS
       -v     Display the version number and compile-time
              options, then exit.

       -h     Display a brief help message and exit.

       -c     Set console mode where the user is expected to
              have secure access to the system. In console
              mode, you will be asked to input your password
              directly instead of having to use an OPIE
              calculator. If you do not have secure access
              to the system (i.e., you are not on the
              system's console), you are volunteering your
              password to attackers by using this mode.

       -d     Disable OTP logins to the specified account.

       -f     Force opiepasswd to continue, even where it
              normally shouldn't. This is currently used to
              force opiepasswd to operate in "console" mode
              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.

       -n     Manually specify the initial sequence number.
              The default is 499.

       -s     Specify a non-random seed. The default is to
              generate a "random" seed using the first two
              characters of the host name and five pseudo-
              random digits.

EXAMPLE
       Using opiepasswd from the console:

       wintermute$ opiepasswd -c
       Updating kebe:
       Reminder - Only use this method from the console;
       NEVER from remote. If you
       are using telnet, xterm, or a dial-in, type ^C now or
       exit with no password.
       Then run opiepasswd without the -c parameter.
       Using MD5 to compute responses.
       Enter old secret pass phrase:
       Enter new secret pass phrase:
       Again new secret pass phrase:

       ID kebe OPIE key is 499 be93564
       CITE JAN GORY BELA GET ABED
       wintermute$

       Using opiepasswd from remote:

       wintermute$ opiepasswd
       Updating kebe:
       Reminder: You need the response from your OPIE
       calculator.
       Old secret password:
               otp-md5 482 wi93563
               Response: FIRM BERN THEE DUCK MANN AWAY
       New secret password:
               otp-md5 499 wi93564
               Response: SKY FAN BUG HUFF GUS BEAT

       ID kebe OPIE key is 499 wi93564
       SKY FAN BUG HUFF GUS BEAT
       wintermute$
