We Manage Our YubiKeys Manually - Why Change?

Managing YubiKeys manually results in additional work and increases the possibilities of security breaches. For example, the administration key of the YubiKey will need to be stored in a file that references the user to whom it is issued. This file could be used maliciously by someone to ascertain the key value; consequently, the YubiKey could easily be reset with a new PIN by acquiring knowledge of the administration key. A CMS removes threats like these and provides many other benefits, such as full lifecycle management, a connection to the Certificate Authority, secure PIN unblock procedures, User Self Service and more.

Why Do You Need A CMS?

A CMS is required, for the following reasons::

  • To centralize YubiKey personalization, management and revocation tasks into one system
  • To reduce costs
  • To simplify installation and usage workflows
  • To enhance Security

Manage the complete Lifecycle


Manage the complete Lifecycle of the YubiKey from one simple view. Management can be delegated and granular access levels can be set. The Life Cycle

This Is How Easy It Is!

We support many different use cases and the configuration options and feature set is vast. But it’s easy to get started. The most common use case is being able to issue a YubiKey with a Windows logon certificate to a user in a secure way. Follow our guides and this can be accomplished in minutes rather than days. Once you have the initial use case configured you can build from there adding User Self Service, Remote Operators and support for other secure devices including Virtual Smart Cards.

Use Case - Windows Logon

We will guide you through the initial setup all the way to you issuing and managing the lifecycle of your YubiKeys. Follow this guide on our Support Portal: Manage PIV Smart Card Tokens
Note: The PKI used in this example use case will be an MS CA. Other PKIs are also supported.

Unblock YubiKey User PIN

We offer a unique way to increase the security of unblocking the YubiKey User PIN. This is done by encapsulating the PUC (PIN Unblock Code) in a Challenge Response Workflow.

Key Archival and Key Recovery

It is possible for a YubiKey to generate a user key on the YubiKey, which is highly secure, but it is not possible for the key to be recovered if the user misplaces the YubiKey. As a result, for encryption of certificates and keys, YubiKeys are used to store only certificates and keys generated by vSEC:CMS S-Series, so the keys can be stored securely in the vSEC:CMS S-Series database secured by the Master Key and are recoverable if needed.
