I am looking for a cheap way of using OPIE (One-time Passwords In
Everything) with dropbear on my WLAN/DSL router (mipsel platform). That

I know how user/pw authentication is done in dropbear - obviously not by
delegating to /bin/login. Can anybody provide a patch for Dropbear so it

saving flash and RAM space is also important, so I would prefer a cheap

Any ideas are welcome. Regards
