Ideally use strong authentication where possible.

Or..Use a similar password across the board, i.e. Password

So for ABC LTD password = ABCPasswordLTD
For EXY Corporation password = EXYPasswordLTD 

Replace Password with something a little stronger, or, you must have some
sort of client reference for them, i.e. The client is rich (TCIRPassword) or
The client is useless (TCIUPassword)

But, ideally strong authentication, and use ssh....

    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
