1 Introduction

The One-Time Password Certificate Enrollment Protocol was created to enhance the network security of remote access connections. The protocol uses different components to increase network security. For example, the one-time password (OTP) authentication mechanism provides enhanced security for remote clients connecting to a server by using different passwords for each logon session. Another component used by the protocol is a short-lived smart card logon certificate template.
