Invantive Authenticator generates TOTP PIN-codes, based upon Invantive Keychain for use with Exact Online, Amazon Web Services, etc. The Authenticator also contains a high-performance reverse search of the generation time of a known PIN-code according to RFC 6238 across all registered TOTP-accounts. For optimal security, accounts can also be obfuscated by replacing all context by random pictures and names.
