Universal 2nd Factor
FIDO U2F is an emerging open authentication standard, with native support in platforms and browsers. U2F breaks the mold for high security public key authentication, removing the complexity of drivers, specialized client software, and the traditional costly CA model. With FIDO U2F, one single YubiKey NEO supports any number of online services, with no user information or encryption keys shared between the service providers. The U2F protocol passed a significant milestone in June 2015, adding new transport protocols that address support for mobile devices. U2F works on mobile devices using NFC — Google Authenticator v4.44 and GitHub both deployed the new transport protocol in December 2015. Learn more about YubiKey for Mobile and FIDO U2F.
