GitHub, Inc. Key Developments

Yubico, GitHub Introduce Universal Second Factor (U2f) to Global Developer Community

Yubico announced GitHub has added FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) support for YubiKey two-factor authentication. At the first-ever GitHub Universe conference, Yubico CEO Stina Ehrensvard was a guest during the opening keynote to introduce YubiKeys and explain how standardized FIDO U2F strong authentication will help secure the future of the internet. During the keynote, GitHub unveiled its new two-factor authentication features, backed by FIDO U2F and YubiKeys, and the company's push to provide modern security to the GitHub user base. The YubiKey is a hardware device that implements U2F and works with a simple touch to trigger U2F's public/private key exchange. The YubiKey simply plugs into a USB port to begin the process of securely authenticating the user. As part of day one at GitHub Universe, there will be an afternoon session focused on security, explaining how GitHub partnered with Yubico to implement U2F. GitHub plans to include FIDO U2F in its continuing advocacy for standardized technology, and will push industry leaders to support U2F's ease-of-integration along with its promise of better security and privacy. Yubico is proud to join GitHub and its ecosystem, and will help it get developers, companies, and industries to take action now and put simple, scalable public key cryptography in the hands of millions of internet users.
