NAME
     otp -- manages one-time passwords

SYNOPSIS
     otp [-dhlor] [-f algorithm] [-u user] sequence-number seed

DESCRIPTION
     The otp program initializes and updates your current series of one-time
     passwords (OTPs).

     Use this to set a new series of one-time passwords.  Only perform this on
     the console or over an encrypted link as you will have to supply your
     pass-phrase.  The other two parameters are	sequence-number	and seed.

     Options are:

     -d	     To	delete a one-time password.

     -f	     Choose a different	algorithm from the default md5.	 Pick any of:
	     md4, md5, and sha.

     -h	     For getting a help	message.

     -l	     List the current table of one-time	passwords.

     -o	     To	open (unlock) the otp-entry for	a user.

     -r	     To	renew a	one-time password series.  This	operation can be per-
	     formed over an potentially	eavesdropped link because you do not
	     supply the	pass-phrase.  First you	need to	supply the current
	     one-time password and then	the new	one corresponding to the sup-
	     plied sequence-number and seed.

     -u	     To	choose a different user	to set one-time	passwords for.	This
	     only works	when running otp as root.
