The company’s core invention, the YubiKey, is a small USB and NFC security key securing access to any number of IT systems and online services. To protect secrets on servers, Yubico has also created the YubiHSM, the world’s smallest hardware security module. For easy integration with any IT system, they offer developers open source servers, support and hosted validation services.
When your users login using a YubiKey, a hardware security key, they’re required to give explicit consent by touching or tapping the YubiKey itself.
Making your users personally a part of the secure login process raises the security bar significantly.
While cybercriminals may get access to usernames and passwords through phishing or data breaches, without the YubiKey they cannot login. Login requires the physical possession of the key.
By using the YubiKey, your user’s presence becomes a critical part of the login process.
