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

NAME
     login_activ, login_crypto, login_snk - provide 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.

     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 au-
     thenticated.  The class argument is unused.

FILES
     /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
     Diagnostic messages are logged via syslog(3) with the LOG_AUTH facility.
