Why Has IAMS Adopted One-Time Passwords?

You have almost certainly seen vans advertising that “No tools are kept in this vehicle overnight”.

The situation with passwords is exactly the same. And a password isn’t just any old tool: it’s the key to the whole vehicle and everything in it.

Passwords stored on site spend 99% of their time doing nothing except offer a tempting target for hackers.

  • If no passwords are stored on site, there’s nothing to tempt the hacker.
  • If one-time passwords (OTPs) are the norm, you never have to remember your password.
  • If OTPs are the norm, you’ll never be guilty of using a password that you’ve already used elsewhere.
  • If OTPs are the norm, you can never be accused of not changing your password often enough.

OTPs make sense.
