How it Works
Passwords are not Secure
Our digital identity is more important today than ever before. Correct representation on social media and in public is essential for both individuals and businesses. Moreover we can hardly forego important online services such as banking and finances. Stolen accounts can have disastrous consequences for the people affected. At the same time, successful attacks on online services and accounts are repeatedly being made public. One database currently lists over 4.7 billion stolen accounts1. Perpetrators also use captured usernames and passwords in order to log in with those credentials to other online services, which is why most big online services now support two-factor authentication.
Security via Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)
Nitrokey FIDO U2F is your key to secure logins to websites (e.g. Google, Facebook) and to your own systems (e.g. Nextcloud, enterprise systems). For this purpose you configure your Nitrokey FIDO U2F once with your accounts, and from that point on confirm your login by simply pushing a button on the Nitrokey. Your protected accounts remain secure even if attackers have stolen your password.
FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F)
FIDO U2F impresses with its ease-of-use, versatility and high-level security. Apart from a supported web browser, no additional software or driver installation is required. Configuration and use is very easy with just the push of a button. You can use a single Nitrokey FIDO U2F to protect any number of accounts of different kinds (e.g. websites, in-house proprietary systems). Thanks to strong cryptography, FIDO U2F is significantly more secure than SMS- and app-based authentication methods.
