Translate yubikey one-time passwords to modhex regardless of keyboard layout.

Project Description

The Yubikey is a one-time password device that acts as a USB keyboard, emitting a unique sequence of keycodes each time the button is pressed. These codes produce different characters depending on your keyboard layout. This can be frustrating if your keyboard layout is incompatible with the Yubico server.

modhex.translate(otp) compares the unicode output of a Yubikey against the characters the Yubikey would emit in a variety of keyboard layouts, returning the set of possible translations. In the likely case len(set(otp)) == 16, almost every keyboard layout has an unambigous translation into Yubico-compatible modhex, what the Yubikey types under the QWERTY keyboard layout.

>>> import modhex
>>> modhex.translate(u"jjjjjjjjnhe.ngcgjeiuujjjdtgihjuecyixinxunkhj")
>>> modhex.translate(u"jjjjjjjjnhe.ngcgjeiuujjjdtgihjuecyixinxunkhj",
... modhex.HEX)
