   This document describes a one-time password authentication system
   (OTP). The system provides authentication for system access (login)
   and other applications requiring authentication that is secure
   against passive attacks based on replaying captured reusable
   passwords. OTP evolved from the S/KEY (S/KEY is a trademark of
   Bellcore) One-Time Password System that was released by Bellcore and
   is described in references [3] and [5].


   One form of attack on networked computing systems is eavesdropping on
   network connections to obtain authentication information such as the
   login IDs and passwords of legitimate users. Once this information is
   captured, it can be used at a later time to gain access to the
   system. One-time password systems are designed to counter this type
   of attack, called a "replay attack" [4].

   The authentication system described in this document uses a secret
   pass-phrase to generate a sequence of one-time (single use)
   passwords.  With this system, the user's secret pass-phrase never
   needs to cross the network at any time such as during authentication

   or during pass-phrase changes. Thus, it is not vulnerable to replay
   attacks.  Added security is provided by the property that no secret
   information need be stored on any system, including the server being

   The OTP system protects against external passive attacks against the
   authentication subsystem. It does not prevent a network eavesdropper
   from gaining access to private information and does not provide
   protection against either "social engineering" or active attacks [9].


   There are two entities in the operation of the OTP one-time password
   system. The generator must produce the appropriate one-time password
   from the user's secret pass-phrase and from information provided in
   the challenge from the server. The server must send a challenge that
   includes the appropriate generation parameters to the generator, must
   verify the one-time password received, must store the last valid
   one-time password it received, and must store the corresponding one-
   time password sequence number. The server must also facilitate the
   changing of the user's secret pass-phrase in a secure manner.

   The OTP system generator passes the user's secret pass-phrase, along
   with a seed received from the server as part of the challenge,
   through multiple iterations of a secure hash function to produce a
   one-time password. After each successful authentication, the number
   of secure hash function iterations is reduced by one.  Thus, a unique
   sequence of passwords is generated.  The server verifies the one-time
   password received from the generator by computing the secure hash
   function once and comparing the result with the previously accepted
   one-time password.  This technique was first suggested by Leslie
   Lamport [1].


   In this document, the words that are used to define the significance
   of each particular requirement are usually capitalized.  These words

     - MUST

       This word or the adjective "REQUIRED" means that the item is an
       absolute requirement of the specification.

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 2]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

     - SHOULD

       This word or the adjective "RECOMMENDED" means that there might
       exist valid reasons in particular circumstances to ignore this
       item, but the full implications should be understood and the case
       carefully weighed before taking a different course.

     - MAY

       This word or the adjective "OPTIONAL" means that this item is
       truly optional.  One vendor might choose to include the item
       because a particular marketplace requires it or because it
       enhances the product, for example; another vendor may omit the
       same item.


   The security of the OTP system is based on the non-invertability of a
   secure hash function. Such a function must be tractable to compute in
   the forward direction, but computationally infeasible to invert.

   The interfaces are currently defined for three such hash algorithms,
   MD4 [2] and MD5 [6] by Ronald Rivest, and SHA [7] by NIST.  All
   conforming implementations of both server and generators MUST support
   MD5.  They SHOULD support SHA and MAY also support MD4.  Clearly, the
   generator and server must use the same algorithm in order to
   interoperate. Other hash algorithms may be specified for use with
   this system by publishing the appropriate interfaces.

   The secure hash algorithms listed above have the property that they
   accept an input that is arbitrarily long and produce a fixed size
   output. The OTP system folds this output to 64 bits using the
   algorithms in the Appendix A. 64 bits is also the length of the one-
   time passwords. This is believed to be long enough to be secure and
   short enough to be entered manually (see below, Form of Output) when


   This section describes the generation of the one-time passwords.
   This process consists of an initial step in which all inputs are
   combined, a computation step where the secure hash function is
   applied a specified number of times, and an output function where the
   64 bit one-time password is converted to a human readable form.

   Appendix C contains examples of the outputs given a collection of
   inputs.  It provides implementors with a means of verification the
   use of these algorithms.

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 3]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

   Initial Step

   In principle, the user's secret pass-phrase may be of any length. To
   reduce the risk from techniques such as exhaustive search or
   dictionary attacks, character string pass-phrases MUST contain at
   least 10 characters (see Form of Inputs below).  All implementations
   MUST support a pass-phrases of at least 63 characters.  The secret
   pass-phrase is frequently, but is not required to be, textual
   information provided by a user.

   In this step, the pass phrase is concatenated with a seed that is
   transmitted from the server in clear text. This non-secret seed
   allows clients to use the same secret pass-phrase on multiple
   machines (using different seeds) and to safely recycle their secret
   pass-phrases by changing the seed.

   The result of the concatenation is passed through the secure hash
   function and then is reduced to 64 bits using one of the function
   dependent algorithms shown in Appendix A.

   Computation Step

   A sequence of one-time passwords is produced by applying the secure
   hash function multiple times to the output of the initial step
   (called S). That is, the first one-time password to be used is
   produced by passing S through the secure hash function a number of
   times (N) specified by the user. The next one-time password to be
   used is generated by passing S though the secure hash function N-1
   times. An eavesdropper who has monitored the transmission of a one-
   time password would not be able to generate the next required
   password because doing so would mean inverting the hash function.

   Form of Inputs

   The secret pass-phrase is seen only by the OTP generator. To allow
   interchangeability of generators, all generators MUST support a
   secret pass-phrase of 10 to 63 characters. Implementations MAY
   support a longer pass-phrase, but such implementations risk the loss
   of interchangeability with implementations supporting only the

   The seed MUST consist of purely alphanumeric characters and MUST be
   of one to 16 characters in length. The seed is a string of characters
   that MUST not contain any blanks and SHOULD consist of strictly
   alphanumeric characters from the ISO-646 Invariant Code Set.  The
   seed MUST be case insensitive and MUST be internally converted to
   lower case before it is processed.

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 4]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

   The sequence number and seed together constitute a larger unit of
   data called the challenge. The challenge gives the generator the
   parameters it needs to calculate the correct one-time password from
   the secret pass-phrase. The challenge MUST be in a standard syntax so
   that automated generators can recognize the challenge in context and
   extract these parameters. The syntax of the challenge is:

           otp-<algorithm identifier> <sequence integer> <seed>

   The three tokens MUST be separated by a white space (defined as any
   number of spaces and/or tabs) and the entire challenge string MUST be
   terminated with either a space or a new line. The string "otp-" MUST
   be in lower case.  The algorithm identifier is case sensitive (the
   existing identifiers are all lower case), and the seed is case
   insensitive and converted before use to lower case.  If additional
   algorithms are defined, appropriate identifiers (short, but not
   limited to three or four characters) must be defined. The currently
   defined algorithm identifiers are:

       md4        MD4 Message Digest
       md5        MD5 Message Digest
       sha1       NIST Secure Hash Algorithm Revision 1

   An example of an OTP challenge is:   otp-md5 487 dog2

   Form of Output

   The one-time password generated by the above procedure is 64 bits in
   length. Entering a 64 bit number is a difficult and error prone
   process. Some generators insert this password into the input stream
   and some others make it available for system "cut and paste." Still
   other arrangements require the one-time password to be entered
   manually. The OTP system is designed to facilitate this manual entry
   without impeding automatic methods. The one-time password therefore
   MAY be converted to, and all servers MUST be capable of accepting it
   as, a sequence of six short (1 to 4 letter) easily typed words that
   only use characters from ISO-646 IVCS. Each word is chosen from a
   dictionary of 2048 words; at 11 bits per word, all one-time passwords
   may be encoded.

   The two extra bits in this encoding are used to store a checksum.
   The 64 bits of key are broken down into pairs of bits, then these
   pairs are summed together. The two least significant bits of this sum
   are encoded in the last two bits of the six word sequence with the
   least significant bit of the sum as the last bit encoded. All OTP
   generators MUST calculate this checksum and all OTP servers MUST
   verify this checksum explicitly as part of the operation of decoding
   this representation of the one-time password.

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 5]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

   Generators that produce the six-word format MUST present the words in
   upper case with single spaces used as separators. All servers MUST
   accept six-word format without regard to case and white space used as
   a separator. The two lines below represent the same one-time
   password.  The first is valid as output from a generator and as input
   a server, the second is valid only as human input to a server.

     Interoperability requires that all OTP servers and generators use
     the same dictionary. The standard dictionary was originally
     specified in the "S/KEY One Time Password System" that is described
     in RFC 1760 [5].  This dictionary is included in this document as
     Appendix D.

     To facilitate the implementation of smaller generators, hexadecimal
     output is an acceptable alternative for the presentation of the
     one-time password. All implementations of the server software MUST
     accept case-insensitive hexadecimal as well as six-word format. The
     hexadecimal digits may be separated by white space so servers are
     REQUIRED to ignore all white space.  If the representation is
     partitioned by white space, leading zeros must be retained.
     Examples of hexadecimal format are:

           Representation                Value

           3503785b369cda8b              0x3503785b369cda8b
           e5cc a1b8 7c13 096b           0xe5cca1b87c13096b
           C7 48 90 F4 27 7B A1 CF       0xc74890f4277ba1cf
           47 9 A68 28 4C 9D 0 1BC       0x479a68284c9d01bc

   In addition to accepting six-word and hexadecimal encodings of the
   64 bit one-time password, servers SHOULD accept the alternate
   dictionary encoding described in Appendix B.  The six words in this
   encoding MUST not overlap the set of words in the standard
   dictionary.  To avoid ambiguity with the hexadecimal representation,
   words in the alternate dictionary MUST not be comprised solely of
   the letters A-F.  Decoding words thus encoded does not require any
   knowledge of the alternative dictionary used so the acceptance of
   any alternate dictionary implies the acceptance of all alternate
   dictionaries.  Words in the alternative dictionaries are case
   sensitive.  Generators and servers MUST preserve the case in the
   processing of these words.

   In summary, all conforming servers MUST accept six-word input that
   uses the Standard Dictionary (RFC 1760 and Appendix D), MUST accept
   hexadecimal encoding, and SHOULD accept six-word input that uses the

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 6]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

   Alternative Dictionary technique (Appendix B).  As there is a remote
   possibility that a hexadecimal encoding of a one-time password will
   look like a valid six-word standard dictionary encoding, all
   implementations MUST use the following scheme.  If a six-word
   encoded one-time password is valid, it is accepted.  Otherwise, if
   the one-time password can be interpreted as hexadecimal, and with
   that decoding it is valid, then it is accepted.


   An application on the server system that requires OTP authentication
   is expected to issue an OTP challenge as described above. Given the
   parameters from this challenge and the secret pass-phrase, the
   generator can compute (or lookup) the one-time password that is
   passed to the server to be verified.

   The server system has a database containing, for each user, the
   one-time password from the last successful authentication or the
   first OTP of a newly initialized sequence. To authenticate the user,
   the server decodes the one-time password received from the generator
   into a 64-bit key and then runs this key through the secure hash
   function once. If the result of this operation matches the stored
   previous OTP, the authentication is successful and the accepted
   one-time password is stored for future use.


   Because the number of hash function applications executed by the
   generator decreases by one each time, at some point the user must
   reinitialize the system or be unable to authenticate.

   Although some installations may not permit users to initialize
   remotely, implementations MUST provide a means to do so that does
   not reveal the user's secret pass-phrase.  One way is to provide a
   means to reinitialize the  sequence through explicit specification
   of the first one-time password.

   When the sequence of one-time passwords is reinitialized,
   implementations MUST verify that the seed or the pass-phrase is
   changed.  Installations SHOULD discourage any operation that sends
   the secret pass-phrase over a network in clear-text as such practice
   defeats the concept of a one-time password.

   Implementations MAY use the following technique for

Haller                      Standards Track                     [Page 7]

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

      o  The user picks a new seed and hash count (default values may
         be offered).  The user provides these, along with the
         corresponding generated one-time password, to the host system.

      o  The user MAY also provide the corresponding generated one
         time password for count-1 as an error check.

      o  The user SHOULD provide the generated one-time password for
         the old seed and old hash count to protect an idle terminal
         or workstation (this implies that when the count is 1, the
         user can login but cannot then change the seed or count).

   In the future a specific protocol may be defined for
   reinitialization that will permit smooth and possibly automated
   interoperation of all hosts and generators.


   All conforming server implementations MUST protect against the race
   condition described in this section.  A defense against this attack
   is outlined; implementations MAY use this approach or MAY select an
   alternative defense.

   It is possible for an attacker to listen to most of a one-time
   password, guess the remainder, and then race the legitimate user to
   complete the authentication.  Multiple guesses against the last word
   of the six-word format are likely to succeed.

   One possible defense is to prevent a user from starting multiple
   simultaneous authentication sessions. This means that once the
   legitimate user has initiated authentication, an attacker would be
   blocked until the first authentication process has completed.  In
   this approach, a timeout is necessary to thwart a denial of service


   This entire document discusses an authentication system that
   improves security by limiting the danger of eavesdropping/replay
   attacks that have been used against simple password systems [4].

   The use of the OTP system only provides protections against passive
   eavesdropping/replay attacks.  It does not provide for the privacy
   of transmitted data, and it does not provide protection against
   active attacks such as session hijacking that are known to be
   present in the current Internet [9].  The use of IP Security
   (IPsec), see [10], [11], and [12] is recommended to protect against
   TCP session hijacking.

RFC 2289               A One-Time Password System          February 1998

   The success of the OTP system to protect host systems is dependent
   on the non-invertability of the secure hash functions used.  To our
   knowledge, none of the hash algorithms have been broken, but it is
   generally believed [6] that MD4 is not as strong as MD5.  If a
   server supports multiple hash algorithms, it is only as secure as
   the weakest algorithm.


   The idea behind OTP authentication was first proposed by Leslie
   Lamport [1]. Bellcore's S/KEY system, from which OTP is derived, was
   proposed by Phil Karn, who also wrote most of the Bellcore reference

Appendix A  -  Interfaces to Secure Hash Algorithms

   Original interoperability tests provided valuable insights into the
   subtle problems which occur when converting protocol specifications
   into running code.  In particular, the manipulation of bit ordered
   data is dependent on the architecture of the hardware, specifically
   the way in which a computer stores multi-byte data.  The method is
   typically called big or little "endian."  A big endian machine stores
   data with the most significant byte first, while a little endian
   machine stores the least significant byte first.  Thus, on a big
   endian machine data is stored left to right, while little endian
   machines store data right to left.

   For example, the four byte value 0x11AABBCC is stored in a big endian
   machine as the following series of four bytes, "0x11", "0xAA",
   "0xBB", and "0xCC", while on a little endian machine the value would
   be stored as "0xCC", "0xBB", "0xAA", and "0x11".

   For historical reasons, and to promote interoperability with existing
   implementations, it was decided that ALL hashes incorporated into the
   OTP protocol MUST store the output of their hash function in LITTLE
   ENDIAN format BEFORE the bit folding to 64 bits occurs.  This is done
   in the implementations of MD4 and MD5 (see references [2] and [6]),
   while it must be explicitly done for the implementation of SHA1 (see
   reference [7]).

   Any future hash functions implemented into the OTP protocol SHOULD
   provide a similar reference fragment of code to allow independent
   implementations to operate successfully.

     MD4_CTX md;
     unsigned char result[16];

     strcpy(buf, seed);     /* seed must be in lower case */
     strcat(buf, passwd);
     MD4Update(&md, (unsigned char *)buf, strlen(buf));
     MD4Final(result, &md);

     /* Fold the 128 bit result to 64 bits */
     for (i = 0; i < 8; i++)

Appendix B   -   Alternative Dictionary Algorithm

   The purpose of alternative dictionary encoding of the OTP one-time
   password is to allow the use of language specific or friendly words.
   As case translation is not always well defined, the alternative
   dictionary encoding is case sensitive.  Servers SHOULD accept this
   encoding in addition to the standard 6-word and hexadecimal


     The standard 6-word encoding uses the placement of a word in the
     dictionary to represent an 11-bit number. The 64-bit one-time
     password can then be represented by six words.

     An alternative dictionary of 2048 words may be created such that
     each word W and position of the word in the dictionary N obey the

             alg( W ) % 2048 == N
             alg is the hash algorithm used (e.g. MD4, MD5, SHA1).

     In addition, no words in the standard dictionary may be chosen.

     The generator expands the 64-bit one-time password to 66 bits by
     computing parity as with the standard 6-word encoding.  The six 11-
     bit numbers are then converted to words using the dictionary that
     was created such that the above relationship holds.


     The server accepting alternative dictionary encoding converts each
     word to an 11-bit number using the above encoding. These numbers
     are then used in the same way as the decoded standard dictionary
     words to form the 66-bit one-time password.

     The server does not need to have access to the alternate dictionary
     that was used to create the one-time password it is authenticating.
     This is because the decoding from word to 11-bit number does not
     make any use of the dictionary.  As a result of the independence of
     the dictionary, a server accepting one alternate dictionary accept
     all alternate dictionaries.

Appendix C  -  OTP Verification Examples

   This appendix provides a series of inputs and correct outputs for all
   three of the defined OTP cryptographic hashes, specifically MD4, MD5,
   and SHA1.  This document is intended to be used by developers for
   interoperability checks when creating generators or servers.  Output
   is provided in both hexadecimal notation and the six word encoding
   documented in Appendix D.


   Note that the output given for these checks is not intended to be
   taken literally, but describes the type of action that should be
