LOGIN_TOKEN(8)

Contents


NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     login_activ, login_crypto, login_snk  -  provide  ActivCard,
CRYPTOCard and
     SNK-004 authentication

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

     Available options are:

     -s       Specify the service.  Currently only challenge, login, and
             response are supported.

     -v      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.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/activ.db   data base of information for  the  ActivCard
tokens.

     /etc/crypto.db   data base of information for the CRYPTOCard
tokens.

     /etc/snk.db     data base of information for the SNK-004 tokens.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]
