is an innovative hardware authentication device developed
and sold by <a href="http://www.yubico.com/">Yubico</a>. To
the user, it looks like a small, thin, disk-on-key with a
button on top. To PasswordSafe, it functions as an
authentication token, providing strong physical security to
the password database. Here we describe the steps needed to
enable YubiKey authentication for PasswordSafe.</td>

<h2>Getting YubiKey</h2>
Obviously, you need a YubiKey device to start. YubiKeys can be
purchased online from <a href="http://www.yubico.com/o.php?refid=87&amp;rno=1465477058">here</a>.
Note that PasswordSafe requires YubiKeys with firmware version <strong>2.2</strong>
and above.<br>
<h2> Configuring your YubiKey</h2>
Your YubiKey needs to be configured properly in order to work with
PasswordSafe. This is done via the Manage->Yubikey... dialog box
as described in the <a href="manage_menu.html">Manage Menu</a> Section.<br>
