NAME

/etc/opiekeys − OPIE database of user key information

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.

sequence

User’s sequence number.

seed

User’s seed.

key

User’s last response (hex).

date

Last change date.

time

Last change time.
