As we know, applications and technologies to use are increasing day by day and so are the user credentials. So, it is difficult to remember all those passwords as there are too many. In such scenarios, Yubico came as a life savior. The best thing about the Yubico authentication is that it supports both symmetric and asymmetric key encryption methods and passwords are encrypted.
- Symmetric key encryption
- Asymmetric encryption
- Works with all OS/platforms
- Customer Support, especially in India
- Documentation availability on open internet
Other solutions support symmetric encryption only, where Yubico supports both symmetric and asymmetric encryption methods. It can be installed on cloud as well as on-premises. So if there is a customer who is not cloud friendly, they can also [benefit from] Yubico. It's suited to all kinds of organization [as it] has so many authentication methods available i.e. Time Based OTP (TOTP), Counter Based OTP (HOTP), Smart Card, etc... It supports older authentication methods as well and supports all the platforms/operating systems.
