Subject:   An utility for OTP

One reason to use OTP is that you don't trust the computer you're one, for example in a library or any computer that you don't own. In this situation, you don't know if SSH or the keyboard are backdoored, so using OTP ensure that even if they catch your password, they can't do anything with it.
