One Time Passwords (OTP)

May 9, 2004 | Comments Off

Roadwarriors, behold! If you have ever found yourself at a public terminal and wary of typing your password/passphrase for fear of keyloggers, I have found VeJOTP to be a great solution. It’s J2ME so it runs on many cell phones. Used in combination with OPIE (Linux (Unix?) One Time Password system) I can access my computers from the road without having to carry OTPs written on slips of papers. And if there is a keylogger, the sniffed password was only good once. A coworker of mine was quick to note this is NOT similar to a one time pad.
