Hi thiago,

If you are looking for secure tokens check out www.rsasecurity.com but I
am not really sure if you can integrate those tokens in to the tty.
Nevertheless check it out.

    Hi Folks,

    Let me explain my problem : 

    I have several machines in many locations, they're firewalls for my
clients.  I don't like idea for writing down all root passwords for 2
reasons : 
        1) security 
        2) Every time I went to a client I would have to bring the root
password with me

    So I thougth about those securitycards that can generate root
passwords on the fly based on some algoritmh.  If I went to the client I
could just see a PIN (right?) on screen and then calculate the root
password. I know there's some "CARDS" that can do that, even if I don't
really know the name of one, but there's any that gives me the same
thing without a card?  That I could calculate using other software?

        If you guys could point me to some urls or texts that would be
