CiscoWorks and one-time passwords

Customer is looking for a management solution for managing all their router and switch configurations. CiscoWorks will work if I can determine a way for the server to work with one-time passwords for ssh or telnet access.

Looked in the tech notes and I did not see anything that hints at a solution.

Any thoughts?

Re: CiscoWorks and one-time passwords

I might suggest using Cisco Secure ACS for Windows NT for authentication (set login module to ACS in CiscoWorks Common Services) and authenticating it to a RSA SecureID token server, if one exists in the customer's infrastructure. You then use ACS authentication for both CW and your network devices.

Not quick and dirty but it would address the requirements.

Here is a quick link:

Hope this helps. Please rate this post if it does.
