    Protect your supply chain with Zero Trust security

    Today’s supply chain includes all the products and services acquired to support an organization, including product parts, hardware, software, and code, as well as the physical and digital interactions between people, applications, and processes. A supply chain that is vulnerable to cyberattacks opens up enterprises to significant operational disruptions, financial loss, damage to brand, product integrity, safety issues, and the loss of intellectual property (IP).

    With multiple moving parts along the supply chain, it’s essential to consider deploying a Zero Trust framework—where no one and no thing is trusted, and an explicit trust decision is made for each user, product, service, and interaction before access is granted. Modern, strong authentication based on phishing-resistant public key cryptography is a core foundation of Zero Trust, and can be leveraged by organizations to secure users, products and third parties against modern cyber threats.

    Ensure integrity of your software supply chain

    Whether you use code that’s been developed by internal teams or from external sources, it is important to always deploy phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) for code access and implement trusted code-signing.

    Not all forms of MFA are created equal. Most basic forms of MFA, such as SMS and mobile-based authenticators, are perishable and highly vulnerable to MiTM threats. These methods do not achieve the strongest levels of phishing defense delivered by purpose-built hardware security keys such as the YubiKey from Yubico. So if your users are using these legacy forms to verify their identity as part of your code management practices, you may be compromising your Zero Trust promise. The YubiKey offers phishing-resistant two-factor, multi-factor, and passwordless authentication at scale, ensuring only trusted and validated users have access to critical code repositories

    YubiKeys ensure that only authorized people have access to PII data and critical systems. They integrate seamlessly with existing IAM solutions such as Microsoft, Okta, Duo, and Ping, and provide secure authentication for hundreds of applications and services, eliminating any rip or replace of existing solutions. Users get protected in minutes right out-of-the-box.

    Ensure integrity of IP and product parts

    It is crucial to ensure that all components involved in an end-to-end process are authentic, to avoid unsolicited replication and theft and ensure quality assurance. The traditional approach to protect intellectual property (IP) and prevent counterfeiting involves the use of digital cryptographic signing keys and encryption, with keys stored in a hardware security module (HSM). However, conventional rack-mounted and card-based HSM devices are large and expensive, making them impractical for example on the assembly floor or for IoT devices.

    Yubico offers the ultra-portable and low-cost YubiHSM 2, the world’s smallest HSM in a nano form factor. The YubiHSM 2 enables secure, tamper-resistant key storage and operations and can be applied to any process where secrets and the authenticity of components needs to be managed across robotic assembly lines, applications, and IoT devices.

    The YubiKey provides phishing-resistant MFA at scale across the supply chain, helping your organization and suppliers implement robust, easy-to-use authentication for any user who has upstream access to the network or at critical IP handoffs.

    A single YubiKey works across multiple devices including desktops, laptops, mobile, tablets, notebooks, and shared workstations, enabling users to utilize the same key as they navigate between devices, and helping you deploy phishing-resistant MFA at scale. YubiKeys are also easily re-programmed, making them suitable for temporary workers, and enable self-service password resets, significantly reducing IT support costs.

    Meet evolving compliance regulations

    The Colonial Pipeline and SolarWinds attacks highlighted supply chain vulnerabilities across critical infrastructure and top federal agencies. In response to these attacks the White House issued Executive Order (EO) 14028, Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, outlining new expectations & guidelines for Zero Trust and phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) for federal agencies—as well as their suppliers and partners.

    Yubico ensures that your organization meets evolving compliance regulations with phishing-resistant security. Both the YubiKey and YubiHSM 2 come in FIPS 140-2 validated form factors, and the YubiKey meets NIST SP 800-63-3 Authenticator Assurance Level (AAL) 3 requirements.
