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.
sequenceUser’s sequence number.
seed    User’s seed.
key     User’s last response (hex).
date    Last change date.
time    Last change time.
