Securely log in to your Mac with your YubiKey using the native smart card (PIV) mode or by setting up Challenge-Response using the Yubico Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM). These methods help better create the ideal ecosystem for a password-less future.
Most common development platforms are available or easy to install on macOS, enabling developers to build for a range of platforms on one machine. The YubiKey protects these projects and more with secure PIV-compatible logon.
Enterprises with macOS deployments can effectively reduce IT operational costs with easy to deploy YubiKey two-factor authentication. The YubiKey does not require a battery or additional hardware such as smart card readers, reducing cost.
MacBook users add a second layer of protection to their login—protecting programs, files, and more—by enabling YubiKey authentication on their personal machines. Authentication requires just a touch.
MacBook users can easily enable and use the YubiKey’s PIV-compatible smart card functionality to protect and fortify their macOS login. The YubiKey provides hardware-backed security to prevent unauthorized access across multiple devices and platforms, including MacBooks and macOS.
