We Love Third-Party Validation!

January 30, 2015 2 minute read

It’s always rewarding when you see third-party validation of your company’s product, and that is why today started off so well.

In separate articles published today, Yubico’s YubiKey was highlighted for its tight security and ease of use by authors Don Sambandaraksa at TelecomAsia.net, which is aimed at the telecom market, and Greg Harvey, co-founder and director at Code Enigma, which offers secure Linux hosting.

Both articles not only speak to the crypto power of the YubiKey, but its flexibility in terms of strong authentication options (including eating the key, really! but please don’t try this at home!) and Yubico’s commitment to open source software and the possibilities it provides.

Sambandaraksa’s article focuses on YubiKey’s OpenPGP support, how a private key is protected and YubiKey’s ability to solve “the usability / security trade-off that has hampered widespread PGP adoption on mobile devices.”

Harvey focuses on YubiKey’s one-time password capability to help protect access to production servers at Code Enigma, including how it is hack-proof, how the key can be certified, and the use of open-source YubiCloud software. Harvey also includes a great tutorial video: Using YubiKeys to secure Debian Linux.
