Hello,

Thanks for great products!

In README, It says that verbose_otp can not be used in OpenSSH.
However, verbose_otp option can be used with OpenSSH_5.3p1 :)

And in README,
> You are advised to not use this, if you are using two factor authentication because that will display your password on the screen.

What is the risk of verbose_otp when using OpenSSH?
Even if the used one-time password leaks out, it seems to be no problem because validation server does not accept OTP.

Thanks.

Hello saso,

Setting the verbose_otp option is not recommended and can open your system to keylogging as it will also send and record the password along with the otp string.

Hello Matthew,

Thanks!

Since Yubico OTP is input as USB keyboard, I think that keylogging is also possible without the verbose_otp option.
Is it wrong..?

When using two factor authentication with Publickey Authentication and Yubico OTP, the change with verbose_otp option will only display used OTP on the terminal.

Best,
saso
