Yubico is going where it has never (officially) been before – this week’s Black Hat conference in Las Vegas. (Although we were once featured in a movie called Blackhat.)
After 18 editions of Black Hat USA, some may consider us late to the party (of course, we were only founded in 2007), but we have some exciting tools to bring into the security conversation. (You can talk with us in Booth 964).
We’ll be showing off our YubiKey lineup designed to strengthen authentication and security with everything from OTPs to OpenPGP. It’s a versatile hardware device that has an amazing range of capabilities.
At Black Hat, the focus is on the YubiKey’s support of the FIDO Alliance’s Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) protocol (Yubico is a co-author), integration with single sign-on software from our partner Ping Identity, support for Near Field Communication (NFC) that brings strong authentication to mobile devices, and added security for Windows login via the YubiKey.
Of course, we’ll have some fun odds-and-ends to make you smile and that you can bring home.
In addition, we’ll have details on the winners in our recent 2015 YubiKing Virtual Hackathon.
Black Hat’s main event runs August 5th and 6th and includes over 100 independently-selected sessions, a business hall, Arsenal (tool/demo “weapons” area), Pwnie Awards (9th annual), and more. Yubico’s booth is open Wednesday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., and Thursday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
If you’re at the show, we’d love to walk you through the benefits of the YubiKey, which makes your accounts safe from hackers and data breaches. If you are in Vegas, or live there, we welcome you to come talk to us about hacks, breaches, authentication, privacy and security.
