Computer login

It doesn’t matter which operating system you have — Windows, Mac, or Linux — you can use a YubiKey to strengthen authentication to prevent unauthorized computer access.

Using a YubiKey with Windows is straightforward for employees connected to a domain and individuals securing their personal computer.

Use PIV-enabled YubiKeys to log in to your Mac and your Keychain on macOS Sierra. Log in to your Mac on OS X using YubiKeys in Challenge-Response mode.

The Yubico Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) provides an easy way to integrate the YubiKey into existing user authentication infrastructures.

YubiKey supports the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) interface and performs RSA and ECC private key operations.
