I'm working on a Qt5 with Win32 project on Win7 using VS2010. I need to implement a simple OTP configuration on our YubiKeys such that they all have a fixed secret key that identifies the YubiKey as a known key. I have gotten to the point where after importing the YubiClientAPI.dll library, I am able to detect if a key is inserted, get the key's serial#, perform an OTP challenge/response, and get current buffer. The results seem to complement the results I get when I run the "Sample YubiClientAPI MFC test container" application compiled from the Samples folder.

I have a couple things that I need to figure out about using the API in order to complete my project. But the most important question I have is that, since my secret 16 byte key is constant on the YubiKey, and I keep getting back different byte strings every time I do a challenge, what do I do on the client end to get a constant expected string back that I can use for recognition. I am assuming that there is something I'm doing wrong. In the code below, you will see that I am randomizing the challenge string (see comment starting with "NOTE:"). I have also commented the randomization out so that the challenge string is all zeroes. Doesn't make a difference in the variability of the response string.

I am also not sure how the "Private Identity 6 byte Hex" field is used in the authentication process? Read the documentation, and I see when I run the "YubiKey Personalization Tool" that I can set that, but don't know how that affects the resulting response I get, and what it has to do with my client-side authentication process.

If anyone can just give me an indication of what I should be looking at to figure this out, I would be very grateful.
