What is Universal 2nd Factor (U2F)?

Managed by the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance, Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) is quickly becoming the new industry standard for verification. This provides significantly stronger security than a simple username and password authentication scheme by requiring users to provide something they have (a USB token, in this case) in addition to something they know (username and password).

Futurex hardware security modules (HSMs) support multi-factor authentication using FIDO2 U2F USB tokens for accessing the HSM configuration utilities.

Securing the world's most sensitive data.
