There used to be a way to have ssh generate a list of passwords and you had to use a new password for each subsequent login.

You could generate say 100 passwords, keep them in your wallet and then use the next password.  I cannot remember how I set this up.  I would really appreciate any information.

keeping passwords in your wallet, is SO not a good idea! What is it you really want to achieve? Is it because you don't trust the machines you use to log in via SSH?
