What is an S/Key?

An S/KEY is a one-time password mechanism developed for authentication to Unix-like operating systems, particularly from dumb terminals or untrusted public computers. This mechanism uses a cryptographic hash function to generate a sequence of 64-bit, one-time passwords for remote user login. Since each password is only used once, the user is protected from password sniffers.
