Thanks to Henrik Schack‘s great work in developing a WordPress Yubikey plugin, I now use two-factor hardware-assisted authentication technology (i.e., the Yubikey) to log in to my blog. Kudos, Henrik!
Since my server still uses php4 (sigh), I had to create a small patch to make it use mhash instead of hash.
During the autumn, in Yubico, we have been working on a PAM module for the Yubikey. It allows you to use the Yubikey to login to your machine, to unlock the screensaver, and so on. I decided to let Google Code host this project, which is the first time I’ve used them. It will be interesting to see how working with their site is going to turn out.
You can buy Yubikeys on our web shop. If you have an interesting idea about what can be done with the key, let me know and I may be able to arrange a good deal for you. 🙂
