Security Keys and Additional Information
  • Yubico: A YubiKey is a small device that you register with a service or site that supports two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication means that each time you log in, the service will request proof that you have your YubiKey in addition to your regular username and password. Phishing, malware and other attack methods don’t work when you use this device because a cybercriminal would need both your physical key and your passwords to breach your accounts.
