YubiKey Manager

Cross-platform application for configuring any YubiKey over all USB interfaces.



This application provides an easy way to perform the most common configuration tasks on a YubiKey.

The current version can:

  • Display the serial number and firmware version of a YubiKey

  • Configure a FIDO2 PIN

  • Reset the FIDO Applications

  • Configure the OTP Application. A YubiKey have two slots (Short Touch and Long Touch), which may both be configured for different functionality. This tool can configure a Yubico OTP credential, a static password, a challenge-response credential or an OATH HOTP credential in both of these slots.

  • Manage certificates and PINs for the PIV Application

  • Swap the credentials between two configured slots

  • Enable and disable USB and NFC interfaces
