I have multiple servers and virtual machines etc. for work and hobbies and I am using my bio-chip implants here from dangerousthings as my password but how can we use the PIN module like in Windows 11 etc. in Linux/GNU since having PIN is more secure than Password since you cannot type out the PIN in the bio-chip implants here since they have strings/letters etc. and you will be needing a
KBR1 for 13.56 MHz HF chips if you got a PIN in your OS.
Have you ever tried RoHos
Rohos Logon Key goodness you guys! Yeees, I know how you all love hearing me promote that particular piece of software, so I figured I’d slather another layer of it
This post answers what everybody with flexNExT envy wishes to know: can you log onto a Windows computer smartly with it? By smartly, I mean without twisting your hand or wrist uncomfortably to present the implant to the reader, and more importantly, letting the LEDs shine to daze and amaze your coworkers.
As a have a few RS232 and Wiegand readers on order and I intend to use them to log into my personal and work computers (login, screensaver unlocking and general PAM authentication under Linux), I decided to prepare my machines to handle those readers. I figured this might be of interested to some of you also.
Serial readers are “dumb” in the sense that, unlike PC/SC or CCID readers, they only report the UIDs of whatever chip they happen to be able to read. You can’t use them to do anything smar…
In certain scenarios, a chip implant can be used as a password replacement for computer login. All of the possible options listed below require a product with an RFID chip that complies with the ISO14443A communication standard. What that standard is and how it works is not necessarily important for you to know in depth, you just need to know products or product bundles contain one. Here is a categorical list of products which do;
That said, if you are looking for a good all around chip impla…
For Linux/GNU? Nope I haven’t but I heard about Rohos before in Windows etc. I didn’t know they also work for Linux/GNU, thank you!
I must apologise here, I made an asumption that RoHos could be used on Linux, purely because
@Rosco was a HUGE advocate of LINUX AND Rohos.
But I just found one of his posts, where he mentions using Rohos for Windows (assuming that is his work computer)
HOWEVER, he also wrote a login script for Linux, so hopefully THAT will suit your needs, The link to the script on GitHub is in the quote below.
Again apologies if I wasted your time
I primarily use Linux, and wrote my own scripts to log in, and lock/unlock sessions (
https://github.com/Giraut/nfcutils ). Under Windows, I use Rohos Logon Key for machines on a domain (not free) and ISLOG Logon NFC Community for standalone machines (free).
Looks like that repo “nfcutils” was removed.
I can see other repos, but not that one:
Maybe it was renamed to “Simple RFID authentication for Linux”:
