NAME

       donkey - alternative for S/KEY's "key" command.

SYNOPSIS

       donkey [options] sequence seed
       donkey -i

       key [option] sequence seed
       key -i

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly the donkey, and key commands.  This manual page was
       written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a
       manual page.  Instead, it has documentation in /usr/share/doc/donkey

       donkey  is an alternative for S/KEY's "key" command. The new feature that the original key
       doesn't have is print an entry for skeykeys as follows;

       This means that donkey is also an alternative for "keyinit". Since the entry is printed to
       stdout  (not  to /etc/skeykeys), you can easily sent it to remote operator by e-mail (with
       PGP signature or something). So, it possible to initiate  S/KEY  without  login  from  the
       console of the host.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options are included below.

       -n     num specify number of keys to be calculated.

       -f     func choose hash function from MD2 , MD4 , and MD5

EXAMPLES

   (1) Calculate an One-Time-Password.
       Execute Donkey with sequence and seed, then input your passphrase.

              % donkey 80 is12345
              Enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
              SOFT O SAW SWAB CON RODE

       You can choose hash function from MD2, MD4, and MD5.

              % donkey 80 is12345
              Enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
              SOFT O SAW SWAB CON RODE

              %donkey -f md5 80 is12345
              Enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
              LACK WIN ROSE ANNA STUN REEK

       The default hash function is MD4 due to the historical reason.

   (2) Calculate some One-Time-Passwords at once.
       Use -n option.

              % donkey -n 10 80 is12345
              Enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
              71: WORE HELL CUB FAR DORA MALE
              72: SAIL DAN DONE BEER DAYS MOS
              73: PAN TONE THAT TOUT BURY EST
              74: KEN ROAM HEAT NAN MEAN HEN
              75: MINI MARS HASH BOTH SITU SING
              76: TOW SHIN FLUE ARID AHOY NE
              77: SLID LEEK NO TREE STOW BEY
              78: RUDY WINE GIFT FUSS AGEE SUE
              79: GELD THIN MAID THIN BUD TURF
              80: SOFT O SAW SWAB CON RODE

       Note  that  though  "Enter  passphrase" is printed out to stderr, One-Time-Passwords is to
       stdout. So, you can redirect the output safely.

   (3) Print skeykeys entry.
       Use -i option without argments. Then, enter login name, sequence and  seed.  If  you  like
       default value, just type RET. Input your passphrase twice to get the entry.

              % donkey -i
              Enter login name [default kazu]:
              Enter sequence 1 to 999 [default 99]:
              Enter new seed [default ur18122]:
              Please choose passphrase between 8 and 256 characters.
              Enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
              Re-enter passphrase : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

BUGS

       Things to do:

       Support other one time passwords such as OTP.

       Support other secure hash functions.
