Security 07 – What’s A Yubico?

After we helped you create strong passwords, the next thing you will want is a second factor of authentication. I know we didn’t cover it, but we want to introduce you to the Yubikey. Yubikey is this little USB key looking device that is amazingly well built, and has one feature. It puts a random string of characters to authenticate you against various devices.

We are joined by John Salter, COO of Yubico, to discuss all the great things Yubico and the Yubikey are doing. Please listen, comment, and let us know what you think.

They have been gracious enough to give us a coupon code for you to use on their holiday pack. The holiday pack includes a Standard Black Yubikey, Neo, and Nano for $99. With our code, you get $15 off to use until Tuesday, December 3rd.  Direct Link
