You may have noticed that Yubico’s support for the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) strong authentication protocol has made some major news in the industry lately, with the help of millions of Google, Dropbox, and GitHub users.
But the YubiKey isn’t just tuned for the magic of U2F, a protocol we co-created with Google and NXP. YubiKeys boast an impressive array of available options from protecting accounts to public key cryptography (re: U2F) to signing code, with the YubiKey NEO and YubiKey NEO-n as Yubico’s do-everything devices. Our other popular YubiKeys are tuned for specific features.
On December 1, Yubico will present a webinar “One Device, Many Functions: Inside the YubiKey” that will examine the DNA of our versatile hardware security device and give you a peek at all the big-time security power that lives under the small key’s molded plastic. Registration is open now.
What began as a single-purpose OTP device has matured in the shadow of password breaches, enterprise hacks, and end-user anxiety. In this webinar, we’ll detail OTP and other YubiKey security options and introduce how enterprises and consumers are using those to move up to improved security and access controls.
A YubiKey factors in a wide range of secure access scenarios, including remote access and VPN, password managers, computer login, content management systems, and online services.
The YubiKey NEO uniquely supports One-Time Passcodes, smart card functionality (including OpenPGP and PIV), and the emerging FIDO Alliance U2F standard. There is also support for creating a complex and difficult to crack static password.
The webinar will take you through the technical details behind the secure, simple, and scalable solutions that are the hallmarks of the YubiKey. The discussion will conclude with a question and answer session.
Join us at 7 a.m. PST on December 1 for an hour-long look at our versatile YubiKey.
