  Description     : one-time passwords implementation for PAM

otpasswd consists of a pam module and an user utility. With the
utility user manages his "state" file: creates his KEY, manages flags
and prints passcards with one-time passwords.

PAM module enables (for example) OpenSSH to do an authentication using
one-time password with the information from user state file.

The program is written in C (C99) and implements OTP as described in
"Perfect Paper Passwords" description of which can be found here
This program also kind of extends this idea with "salt".

Unlike OPIE, otpasswd uses modern hashing algotrithms and supports offline
/ out-of-band use.
