How does the FIDO2 U2F token work?

The FIDO standard used by Futurex for multi-factor authentication is implemented using USB tokens that connect to the computer being used to access the Excrypt Manager application or HSM web configuration panel.

  • FIDO2 U2F is based around a physical USB token that the user possesses
  • During the setup process, users enroll a token under their account
  • The token must be inserted in a USB port of the computer connecting to the HSM
  • After entering the correct username and password, they will be prompted to perform a multi-factor authentication, which involves pressing a button located on the token
