|Subject:||Yubikeys are now supported|

The Fedora Infrastructure team is happy to announce support for the hardware key authentication device, the yubikey. Users will be able to use their own yubikeys to access some Fedora services, like fedorapeople.org or some web services. Why have we done this? The main purpose was to provide multi-factor authentication to our high security systems. Requiring both a username/password and yubikey otp to access our most sensitive hosts provides an additional layer of security then just username/password alone. Contributors requiring access to these hosts will be provided with a yubikey. These hosts would include, for example, the signing servers. We also decided to allow yubikeys as an authentication option for the larger community to some hosts and services like fedorapeople.org or https://admin.fedoraproject.org/community/. When asked for a password, just use your yubikey to generate a otp instead. Those wishing to use one may purchase a yubikey on their own at: http://yubico.com/products/yubikey/ For more information on how to program your yubikey see the our yubikey howto on the wiki: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastruture/Yubikey Implementation work continues to be discussed and put in please but please direct any questions or comments to #fedora-admin on irc.freenode.net or the Infrastructure mailing list - https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/infrastr... -Mike _______________________________________________ devel-announce mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel-an... -- devel mailing list email@example.com https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel
