How does YubiKey work?

Forget about having to reach for your phone, remembering and entering codes – just one touch of the YubiKey is enough to verify the user and it’s done. Moreover, you don’t have to use YubiKey every time. Once verified, an app or service can remain trusted.

YubiKey is available in various formats, supporting multiple authentication protocols and compatible with hundreds of applications and services. The models are dust and water-resistant, require no charging, cannot be disassembled, nor do they require driver installation – they are simple to use and configure.

Changing the game for modern authentication resistant to phishing

YubiKey is a revolutionary hardware solution that redefines the concept of authentication. It provides extremely effective protection of employee and user identities while reducing technical support costs and delivering unparalleled user experience.

Yubico offers the following authentication options

  • Strong single-factor authentication – passwordless

YubiKey replaces weak passwords with secure, passwordless login via touch.

  • Strong two-factor authentication – password + token

YubiKey adds a second factor to two-factor authentication.

  • Strong multi-factor authentication – passwordless + PIN

Combines touch-based authentication with PIN code authentication to meet the requirements for the most risky operations.

YubiKey supports the following authentication protocols:


Yubico OTP (one-time password), HOTP (time-based or event-based token),

PIV (smart card) – the ability to store a PIV certificate on the key, which allows you to log in, among other things, to Active Directory,

Static passwords – keys from the 5 series have the ability to store a maximum of two long character strings, which can later be ‘injected’ into the user interface,

Challenge-Response – a login method that requires authorization from both sides (the key and the application), based on a ‘password-response’ principle,

OpenPGP – the ability to store a PGP key, used for encrypting emails, files, as well as signing them.
