Using OPIE on OpenSUSE

With OpenSUSE, things are very easy. Select your favorite package manager (I tend to use which ever one comes up first!) and install the RPM for opie – under the group Productivity/Security.

Install the RPM, and all of the opie tools are available. Using opie to control your one-time passwords (OTP) has been discussed before, and nothing changes under OpenSUSE. However, installing OTP into PAM requires changing a different file (/etc/pam.d/common-auth). Add to the end of this file the following:

auth sufficient use_first_pass

This should be enough to allow the use of OTP in most normal situations. The other directions are as they were presented in a previous blog post. Namely: use opiepasswd to create the initial key and password, and use opiekey to generate a list of upcoming OTP keys if desired.
