The Yubikey Via Security Now! 143

I just got done Listening to the latest Security Now! with Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte. The Yubikey sounds amazing. It is produced by Yubico. They are a start up company that is trying to improve the security dongle industry. The Yubikey is a small dongle that will fit on your key chain. The computer recognizes it as a USB keyboard, it generates a OTP (one time password) that can be authenticated via the Yubico server or one you can run your own. I have been using the Yubico server since they have a plethora of applications that have chosen to integrate a Yubikey login procedure. I am still waiting for mine to arrive as it is back ordered, no doubt since it was mentioned on SN.
