Yubico at RSA 2018: Passwordless Logins, Developer Programs, and More

Heading to RSA in San Francisco next week? We’ll be there too, celebrating our 10th year at the conference!

Be sure to stop by Booth #S2241 to see all the awesome things we will be showing, and if you haven’t registered for the conference yet, use this code (X8EYUBIC) for a free expo pass on us.  

An industry first, we are showcasing passwordless login with the just released Security Key by Yubico, the first hardware authentication device to support both FIDO U2F and FIDO2. Yubico is a leading contributor to the new FIDO2 open authentication standard which shares many of the same characteristics as FIDO U2F: public key cryptography, no shared secrets, and no drivers or client software. However, with FIDO2, there’s no need for passwords as user credentials are tied directly to the Security Key. The device can also be conveniently paired with PINs, biometrics, or other human gestures as an additional factor.

At Yubico we’re constantly innovating to make simple, secure authentication a standard for the industry. Along with the announcement of our new FIDO2-enabled security key, we are also announcing our new Yubico Developer Program to provide resources for rapidly enabling strong authentication in web and mobile applications across all our supported protocols including FIDO U2F, PIV (smart card), OpenPGP, OTP (one-time password), the new FIDO2 protocol and for the YubiHSM2. Developer resources include workshops, webinars, implementation guides, reference code, APIs and SDKs. RSA attendees (and those who are reading this blog) will be able to sign up for early access to resources to support implementation of FIDO2.

We also invite you to join our CEO & Founder, Stina Ehrensvärd, and SVP of Product, Jerrod Chong, who will be speaking on the importance of strong authentication for today and tomorrow’s cyber landscape.

Yubico is extremely proud of  what we’ve accomplished over the last ten years. The YubiKey is used by millions around the globe and works with hundreds of services right out of the box, and this number is rapidly growing. That’s one key for an unlimited number of personal or business accounts.

At RSA, be on the lookout for Yubico Technology Partner booths to see how the YubiKey seamlessly integrates with their services. Participating Yubico Technology Partners include:

If you’re attending RSA next week, please stop by our booth and say hi! We will have team members on site to answer any questions, provide product demonstrations, offer recommendations for specific use-cases and chat about the new Security Key by Yubico and Yubico Developer Program.

Also, make sure you follow us on Twitter for updates during the show. We’ll see you there!
