Project title: One-time-password (token) based authentication and transactions
Project details: A variety of packages such as dynalogin to support token authentication have been present for various use cases. Some basic cases are UNIX logins and web based logins (OpenID). However we can improve the interface by assuming asynchronous calls to simpleID in order to facilitate better security measures during real time critical situations such as net banking transactions
Synopsis: Enhancing/creating some authentication and transaction protocols based on the one-time password.
Benefits to Debian: heavily secure channel for transactions
Deliverables: Waiting for confirmation and reply from mentors
Project schedule: Will begin as soon as a message is given to me from the mentors.
week 1: find out more about the libraries and interact with people on the mailing list
week 2: read more on libraries and start finding out the features for the gui
week 3 and 4: implementing the gui
week 5: writing a rough documentation for the gui
week 6: implement a proper gui and write the final documentation
Exams and other commitments: available during the entire project period. But can commit to this project completely after may24
