LOGIN_TOKEN(8) System Manager's Manual LOGIN_TOKEN(8)

NAME

login_activ, login_crypto, login_snkprovide ActivCard, CRYPTOCard and SNK-004 authentication

SYNOPSIS

login_token [-s service] [-v name=value] user [class]

DESCRIPTION

The login_token program implements an X9.9 token card challenge response authentication mechanism (see login.conf(5)). It must be invoked by one of the names: login_activ, login_crypto, or login_snk.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-s service
Specify the service. Currently only challenge, login, and response are supported.
 
 
-v name=value
This option and its value are ignored.
login_token will look up user in the appropriate database file, depending on what name it was called as: /etc/activ.db, /etc/crypto.db, or /etc/snk.db. It then will issue a challenge, and if the user is able to correctly respond (by using the appropriate token) the user will be authenticated. The class argument is unused.
