ADL Data has added Onetime Passwords to their Electronic Prescribing software. This allows physicians to electronically sign electronic Rx Orders for Prescriptions and DEA medications. The passwords are generated on a Hybrid PKI/OTP Token (Fob) that supports both password display and USB connection.
A one-time password (OTP) is a password that is valid for only one login session or transaction, on a computer system or other digital device. OTPs avoid a number of shortcomings that are associated with traditional (static) password-based authentication; the one time password is guaranteed to meet the 2-FA requirements as it meets both:
- Factor 1: Something a person has (such as a small keyring fob device with the OTP calculator built into it, or a smartcard or specific cellphone) and
- Factor 2: Something the user knows (such as a PIN).
