OTP command line tool
Table of Contents
This application is properly running on debian stretch in python3 virtual environement:
$ python3 -m venv koptvenv $ source ./kotpvenv/bin/activate
This requiere xclip on your computer to temporary put the secret in your clipboard at the end of the program the initial value is back in your clipboard:
$ apt install xclip
If you are using -o option (console output) the app won’t complaints if xclip is not there.
Install using your favorite installer. For example:
$ pip install keyring-otp
use -h to get recent help:
$ kotp -h usage: kotp [-h] [-s SECRET] [-o] [-d DURATION] keyring key CLI to generate One Time Password from secrets stored in Keyring (using seahorse password manager) positional arguments: keyring key optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -s SECRET, --secret SECRET Force using secret from command line instead getting it from the password manager. (as keyring and key are mandatory set any values they will be ignored). -o, --output Display output in console and in the clipboard (useful if you can't install xclip). -d DURATION, --duration DURATION How many seconds you wants the One Time Password in your clipboard. Note that as time is changing, the TOTP password will be updated and your clipboard will be updated too!
Let’s assume I’ve a keyring called otp which contains a key called github wich contains my github otp password.
To get the Time based OTP password in my clipboad I do:
$ kotp otp github
At the time writting the otp keyring must be unlock before running the application.
Here an other example by giving the OTP password value in command line:
$ kotp -s SECRETS -o -d 35 nothing real Current TOTP 887562 at Wed Nov 8 07:48:18 2017 Current TOTP 291833 at Wed Nov 8 07:48:30 2017
This option is discouraged as long your OTP secret will be in your bash history, we may remove this option to replace it with a prompt in the future
- make it usable as an API, API consumer may add multiple callback they should
be called once OTP as benn changed (callback may be declared in entry point
to let user define new callback easly), this apps should declare some
default behaviours likes:
- print in console
- filling clipboard (require an init method and final method to set back current clipboad value)
- Prompt to unlock keyring
- Thinking replace -s option and open secret input to avoid le trace in use bash history
- use python keyring to make this app portable with more password manager: GnomeKeyring (for Gnome environments) or KDEWallet (for KDE environments) or Win32CryptoRegistry (for Windows)
- manage passman backends
- save new secrets
