OTPs on Windows: Help getting started

Hi there,

I'm looking for a more secure solution in terms of protecting some Windows computers.
I heard about OTPs, One Time Passwords, and I'm interested in pursuing that option.

Where can I get started and what products are available for a good price?
The computer will be administered by more than one person so more than one person needs the password list, and it needs to be synchronized for all people.

Ideally, there would be some solution that is easy to implement.

Ok, can you please explain what that is, and how to get started?

Do I need a dedicated server? Can I just run a copy on one machine?

What software do I install and where?

Also, what's Aladdin?
Ideally, I don't want to use a separate password server, and this needs to be reasonable in price (under $100ish) since its only for one or two computers.

RSA won't come for under $100 for sure. I'm not sure about Aladdin.

Wait for others to post, in the mean time I will check out if something is there which can fit your req.

My budget is now higher.
I think $300 is the new limit, but even anything around there might be fine.

I called Aladdin, they look good. The problem is we need a log-in system that supports it. What are the options?
I'm thinking that implementing Citrix might be expensive, but I have no clue what the prices are.

Well, I guess the closest answer is RSA SecurID

There is also some very inexpensive solutions Aladdin can offer that are certificate-based.

Its worth mentioning that such security is mean for computers already on a VPN. Its not a general OTP solution anyone can implement easily.

Exactly, you got the point. One Time passwords on VPN is good.

Considering RSA SecureID, it is a 2 factor authentication. Basically you remember a 4 digit number along with the random number provided by the key. Works just great.
