OATH Authentication

What is it?

The Initiative for Open Authentication (OATH) is based around the idea of authenticating with One-Time Passwords (OTPs) using a standard outlined in RFC 4226 which is referred to as Hash-based OTP (HOTP) and Time-based OTP (TOTP).

You can use Google Authenticator on your Android or Blackberry phone to provide second-factor authentication for Google accounts, Linux boxes, LastPass, and other services.
