This library provides HMAC and time-based one-time password functionality as defined by RFC 4226 and RFC 6238 for PHP 5.3+.


Via Composer

$ composer require rych/otp


The library makes generating and sharing secret keys easy.


use Rych\OTP\Seed;

// Generates a 20-byte (160-bit) secret key
$otpSeed = Seed::generate();

// -OR- use a pre-generated string
$otpSeed = new Seed('ThisIsMySecretSeed');

// Display secret key details
printf("Secret (HEX): %s\n", $otpSeed->getValue(Seed::FORMAT_HEX));
printf("Secret (BASE32): %s\n", $otpSeed->getValue(Seed::FORMAT_BASE32));

When a user attempts to login, they should be prompted to provide the OTP displayed on their device. The library can then validate the provided OTP using the user's shared secret key.


use Rych\OTP\HOTP;

$otpSeed = $userObject->getOTPSeed();
$otpCounter = $userObject->getOTPCounter();
$providedOTP = $requestObject->getPost('otp');

// The constructor will accept a Seed object or a string
$otplib = new HOTP($otpSeed);
if ($otplib->validate($providedOTP, $otpCounter)) {
    // Advance the application's stored counter
    // This bit is important for HOTP but not done for TOTP
    $userObject->incrementOTPCounter($otplib->getLastValidCounterOffset() + 1);

    // Now the user is authenticated

Time-based OTPs are handled the same way, except you don't have a counter value to track or increment.
