Cross-platform application for generating Open Authentication (OATH) time-based TOTP and event-based HOTP one-time password codes, with the help of a YubiKey that protects the shared secrets.
Keep your OATH secrets safe by storing them on a YubiKey and generate the codes with this application.
Add a credential by scanning a QR code on the screen.
Supports 6, 7 or 8 digit codes.
Supports TOTP credentials with any time period.
Require touch on YubiKey to generate code.
Protect your credentials with a device password.
Usage of this software requires a compatible YubiKey device. Yubico Authenticator is capable of provisioning and using both slot-based credentials (compatible with any YubiKey that supports OTP) as well as the more powerful standalone OATH functionality found on the NEO, YubiKey 4 and YubiKey 5 series. To use the standalone OATH functionality your YubiKey must have the CCID mode enabled, which can be done by using the YubiKey Manager.
Installers are available here.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:yubico/stable sudo apt update sudo apt install yubioath-desktop
