#include <oath.h>

int oath_totp_validate3(const char * secret, size_t secret_length, time_t now, unsigned time_step_size, time_t start_offset, size_t window, int * otp_pos, uint64_t * otp_counter, const char * otp);

ARGUMENTS

size_t secret_length length of secret
time_t now Unix time value to validate TOTP for
unsigned time_step_size time step system parameter (typically 30)
time_t start_offset Unix time of when to start counting time steps (typically 0)
size_t window how many OTPs after/before start OTP to test
int * otp_pos output search position in search window (may be NULL).
uint64_t * otp_counter counter value used to calculate OTP value (may be NULL).
const char * otp the OTP to validate.
