Security Tokens

No Phone? No Problem

Duo supports standalone, one-time password hardware devices for two-factor authentication; choose from either USB devices or tokens.

A security token (also referred to as a hardware token) is a small hardware device carried by a user to authorize access to a network service. The device may be in the form of a smart card or may be embedded in a key fob.

We support USB devices, created by Yubico that you can automatically generate and submit a one-time password into a text field validated by Duo. Duo also supports any OATH HOTP-compatible tokens.

Duo also provides many other two-factor authentication methods to support your diverse user base.
