Before you can use the Yubikey Authentication system, you need a Yubikey Hardware Device

Once you have one of these devices, you can generate yourself a Yubikey application ID.  You will need this so that the plugin may communicate with the Yubikey authentication servers.

To generate your Yubikey application ID and key, please go here:

Simply enter your registered Yubikey email address and then enter a Yubikey One Time Password (OTP).  The site will then return you two pieces of information.

  1. Client ID - which you put into the App ID field of the plugin.
  2. API Key - which you put into the API Key field of plugin.

Once these are entered the Yubikey functionality is ready to run.
