Okta enables secure identity management and single sign-on to desktop and mobile applications. With the YubiKey and Okta’s Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication, users are able to securely log in to Okta’s platform. OTPs generated by a YubiKey are significantly longer than those requiring user input (32 characters vs 6 or 8 characters), which means a higher level of security. Enterprises can also configure their own encryption secrets on a YubiKey, which means no one else ever sees those secrets.
YubiKeys are durable, always-accessible, hardware devices that enable seamless, secure second-factor authentication in seconds. Simply touching a YubiKey causes it to send a new one-time password 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.
