Re: 2 factor authentication for AIX and Linux Servers

I saw an e-mail recently talking about how to do this with Google
Authenticator, though it's targeting Ubuntu specifically:

The part that does the magic is available in the Open Build Service, and
can probably be built for any system elsewhere:
