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 both enterprise users connected to a domain and individuals securing their personal computer.

PIV-enabled YubiKeys can be used to log in to your Mac and your Keychain on macOS Sierra. OS X users can use YubiKeys in the Challenge-Response mode to log in.

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.
