Yubikey Handbook

Featured on the 3rd-Party Labs (3PL) - YubiKey Innovations and Inspirations compilation.

Yubikey is an hardware device manufactured by Yubico that provides several forms of strong authentication and encryption. It has many use cases and interesting applications.

The Yubikey Handbook is an attempt of exploring those use cases and is intended to be a living document. It is focused on the Yubikey 4/Yubikey 4 Nano. With some adaptations, parts of this document will also apply to the Yubikey NEO.
