Core OATH features

    • Open Authentication (OATH) is an open standard introduced by VeriSign and designed to enable strong authentication for devices from multiple vendors.
    • Configure the YubiKey to generate event-based 6- or 8 digit One-Time Passwords.
    • Configure to automatically generate an OATH token Identification string.

How it works

Compared to OATH LCD tokens, the YubiKey is convenient sized, robust and does not require any batteries. With the USB connection, the OTP and optional identifier is automatically inserted in the OTP and identification fields.
