One-time Passwords (OT PW) are not really documented yet. As I have 
mailed to Bine off-list, the rsbac_passwd command allows to add OT PW 
for users. 

Get the help screen:
rsbac_passwd -h

Add one for yourself, providing one existing password (OT or normal):
rsbac_passwd -o

Add one for another account (you need MODIFY_PERMISSION_DATA right to 
that user):
rsbac_passwd -n -o username

Remove all OT PW of yourself:
rsbac_passwd -O

Remove all OT PW of any user:
rsbac_passwd -O username

Count number of remaining Passwords:
rsbac_passwd -C username

You can pipe the passwords into the rsbac_passwd command from a script 
(newlines are important!):
echo "existingpass
newpass" | rsbac_passwd -o

Or for another user, if you have MODIFY_PERMISSION_DATA right:
echo "newpass
newpass" | rsbac_passwd -n -o username

Hope this helps,
