Risky Biz Soap Box: Banks to embrace Yubikeys for customersA chat with Yubico's Chief Solutions Officer Jerrod Chong...
As regular listeners know, the soap box podcasts we publish here at Risky.Biz are wholly sponsored. That means everyone you hear in one of these podcasts, paid to be here.
And this edition of Soap Box has become an annual thing – it’s our once-yearly catch up with Jerrod Chong, the chief solutions officer of Yubico, makers of the Yubikey and YubiHSM.
Yubikey is an infosec darling, really, because they’re in the unique position of having a product that’s popular with security professionals like CISOs while also being popular with security-conscious consumers. Businesses get value out of Yubikeys, but so do normal people, thanks to key support being baked into services like Facebook and Google.
As you’re about to hear, there’s a whole new category of use about to open up – Bank of America is launching FIDO2 U2F support for its customers. That’s a big deal – the more FIDO2 keys we get out there the better.
