Allison interviews Karin Muskopf from YubiCo about their range of hardware authentication solutions for online security. Yubico offers many secure key formats more secure than SMS messaging or an authenticator app for second or multi-factor authentication.

YubiKeys provide strong authentication with support for multiple protocols, including existing Smart Card/PIV, and FIDO2/WebAuthn, the new standard that replaces weak password-based authentication.

The YubiKey5 series provides expanded authentication options including Single Factor (passwordless), Two Factor (password + authenticator), and Multi-Factor (password + PIN).

YubiKeys come in several form factors including USB-C, USB-A, NFC, and Lightning. Some of the more advanced YubiKeys support biometric authentication with up to 10 fingerprints.

YubiKeys work across major operating systems including Microsoft Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux, as well as leading browsers. YubiKeys are very affordable, starting at $25 per key.
