Okta enables secure identity management and single sign-on to desktop and mobile applications by providing multi-factor authentication. With the YubiKey and Okta’s Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication, users are able to securely log in to Okta’s platform via one-time password (OTP) or FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (FIDO U2F) and a YubiKey.
YubiKeys are durable, always-accessible, hardware devices that enable seamless, secure second-factor authentication in seconds in a variety of protocols such as one-time password or FIDO U2F. Simply touching a YubiKey causes it to authenticate to the Okta Cloud, which performs the validation and enables secure access to individual accounts. This tight platform integration guarantees Okta-level quality of service and uptime for YubiKey authentication. Enterprises can also configure their own encryption secrets on a YubiKey, which means no one else ever sees those secrets.
