Yubico was founded in Sweden 2007 with the mission to make secure login easy and available for everyone. In 2011, Stina, CEO & Founder, and Jakob, CTO, moved to Silicon Valley to make the dream happen. In close collaboration with the leading internet companies and thought leaders we created native support for their security keys in the major online platforms and browsers, enabling a safer internet for billions of people. Yubico is located in 7 countries, and their security keys, manufactured in Sweden and USA, have won the trust of the largest enterprises and millions of users across the globe.
The company’s core invention, the YubiKey, is a small USB and NFC security key securing access to any number of IT systems and online services. To protect secrets on servers, they also created the YubiHSM, the world’s smallest hardware security module. For easy integration with any IT system, they offer developers open source servers, support and hosted validation services.
Yubico pioneered the design of the first one-time password authentication to work with a simple touch and with no client software, and they made it compatible with the open authentication standard OATH. Yubico then further secured and simplified the PIV smart card standard by adding touch-to-sign and built-in attestation. And in close collaboration with Google and Microsoft, they co-created the FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) and FIDO 2 open authentication standards. Their work has been contributed to open identity standards organizations W3C, IETF, FIDO Alliance and OpenID.
Emerging Systems, being the partner of Yubico is fully equipped to design and deploy YubiKey solution in collaboration with “The Kernel“.
