• Can you provide an example of a one-time password algorithm?

    I'm trying to develop a website, along with a corresponding helper program (that would be installed on a user computer).

    We have a corporate web mail site (that uses PHP and MySQL) for specific users of our company who are working remotely with the web portal. Each user has a password and login.

    I understand that OTP (one-time passwords) are the new generation of password / security techniques but I'm trying to figure out if it's still safe enough or will it vanish soon. If so, what's the new placement for it?
