The HOTP class allows creation of HMAC-Based One-Time passwords.
The HOTP class implements the HOTP algorithm defined in RFC 4226 (HMAC-Based One-Time Password). These types of passwords are commonly used as a second factor of authentication in multi-factor authentication scenarios.
To begin specify the shared secret in the Secret property.
Next, you may set Counter. If this property is not set, the class will use a default value.
