GitHub, the leading software developers community with 27 million global users and 75 million projects, has built FIDO U2F into their authentication system. Meaning that Yubico’s lineup of FIDO U2F-compliant security keys — the FIDO U2F Security Key, the YubiKey 4 series and the YubiKey NEO — are ready to protect GitHub’s millions of users and their volumes of sensitive data.
Taking advantage of the open source community around FIDO U2F that Yubico has nurtured, GitHub was able to build comprehensive support in a short time. Read GitHub’s blog announcing their support for FIDO U2F. They encourage developers to build FIDO U2F support into their own applications as well.
The YubiKey is easy to set up, and even easier to use. Learn how to use your YubiKey with GitHub.
