Yes, YubiHSM 1.x does not support asymmetric cryptography.
The YubiHSM 1 is special purpose HSM to protect encryption keys and OTP seeds for the Yubico Validation Server with great security, great quality , and a low cost of ownership.

If you are using your YubiKey with a service or application, the policy for lost or stolen YubiKeys depends on how that service or application deals with the situation. The simplest recovery method is if the site supports alternative authentication mechanisms, so that you can regain access to the account and can delete (de-associate) the […]
Yubico’s YubiCloud OTP Validation Servers support HTTPS for secure communication with validation clients. Additionally, the validation protocol also (optionally) uses HMAC-SHA1 signatures on request and response to verify message integrity. For more information, see the YubiCloud Validation Service Guide.
Yubico currently has five YubiCloud OTP validation servers. They are located around the world, distributed and synchronized to ensure that there is no single point of failure. For more information, see the YubiCloud Validation Service Guide.
For all of our YubiKeys (YubiKey 4/YubiKey 4 Nano/YubiKey 4C, YubiKey NEO/NEO-n, YubiKey Edge/Edge-n, and YubiKey Standard/Nano), there are two “configuration slots” on each YubiKey. You can program each slot with a single credential, such as one for OTP and one for OATH-TOTP. All keys also support static password or challenge-response. For the keys that […]
On the YubiKey 4, YubiKey 4 Nano, and YubiKey 4C, there are two “configuration slots” on each key. You can program each slot with a single credential, such as one for OTP and one for Challenge-Response (such as for Microsoft Windows or Mac OS X account login) or static password. You can configure the YubiKey […]
To allow the YubiKey to be compatible across multiple hardware platforms and operating systems, the YubiKey appears as a USB keyboard to the operating system. This design provides several advantages including: Virtually all mainstream operating systems have built-in USB keyboard support. Since the YubiKey uses generic keyboard drivers, there are no special drivers that need […]
Your YubiKey can be used in a large variety of ways. For a list of what YubiKeys can do you for you, as an individual, see YubiKeys for Individuals. For a list of what YubiKeys can do for your business, see YubiKeys for Businesses.

To test your Security Key, go to U2F Registration and Login Demo. Use the following steps to troubleshoot your YubiKey. In each of these steps, insert the YubiKey […]
The answer depends on what option each application vendor and service provider offers you to address such a situation. It is common practice that the application or service may offer options to temporarily disable the need for the YubiKey authentication, and fallback to one-factor authentication for certain duration (such as a day). Other applications may […]

Use the following steps to troubleshoot your device: Make sure that you have turned on NFC on your device. Position your YubiKey NEO as close to the NFC antenna (of your device) as you can and hold it there for two to three seconds. Due to the small size of the YubiKey NEO and its […]
When you keep your YubiKey 4 Nano, YubiKey 4C, YubiKey NEO-n, YubiKey Edge-n, or YubiKey Nano inserted in the USB port (as it is intended), you may find that you can trigger OTP codes without meaning to, simply by brushing against the YubiKey. You can solve this issue using the following instructions. For Microsoft Windows […]
This depends on how you are planning to use the YubiKey. For standard YubiKey functionality (Yubico OTP, OATH-HOTP, Challenge-Response, Static Password) over USB, YubiKeys use the same drivers as USB keyboards. If your device supports USB keyboards, it will work with the YubiKey. If your device does not load the driver, try plugging in a […]
The YubiKey NEO is shipped with its NDEF4 tag programmed to emit a URI of the form https://my.yubico.com/neo/[OTP].

It is not possible to create an exact copy of a YubiKey, but in some cases it is possible to make a copy of the credentials stored in the YubiKey. YubiKeys are, by design, write-only devices. This means that secrets to the credential can only be written into, and not read out of the device. […]
Yubico warrants that your YubiKey is free from defects for one year from the date of delivery to the original purchaser. For more information, including the warranty period on repaired or replaced products, see the Yubico Terms and Conditions of Sale and License.
Two-factor authentication is a strong authentication method where the user provides two types of identification. Two-factor authentication combines something you know (a PIN or a password) with something you have (a physical device, such as a YubiKey). The physical device must be capable of interacting with a computer and transmitting a unique ID. The YubiKey […]
