Do you think we are missing an alternative of otp-authenticator or a related project?
Simple tool for keeping track of your one-time pad two-factor authentication keys; basically a command-line version of the canonical Google Authenticator App.
The library uses GnuPG (through h-gpgme) to safely encrypt your secret keys.
The first time you use it, it asks for a fingerprint to use for encryption.
Currently GnuPG 1.x has some issues with h-gpgme when asking for keys, so
GPG 2.x is recommended. Keys are stored, encrypted, at
Instructions are available through
--help, but the basics are:
# interactively add a new key otp-auth add # interactively add a new key by entering the secret key uri # (following the otpauth protocol) otp-auth add --uri # view all time-based codes and cached counter-based codes otp-auth view # list accounts, do not display codes otp-auth view --list # generate a new counter-based code otp-auth gen ID # edit the metadata and delete codes otp-auth edit ID otp-auth delete ID # dump all stored data as json (and as yaml) otp-auth dump otp-auth dump --yaml
You can edit configuration at
~/.otp-auth.yaml, the basic schema is:
fingerprint: ABCDEF12 vault: /home/robert/.otp-auth.vault
