This is the initial release of our YubiKey Authentication Plugins for Joomla!. They allow you to use a YubiKey hardware token for one- and two*-factor authentication on Joomla! 2.5 and 3.x.

* two factor authentication is only available on Joomla! 3.2 and later

In this initial release we already packed some serious features.

One factor authentication (Joomla! 2.5 and 3.x)

  • Each user can define one YubiKey to log him in to the site
  • You can use only your YubiKey's generated code to log in to your site; you don't need to enter your password or even your username.
  • One YubiKey can be optionally defined as a "master key", allowing you to log in as any user (enter the desired username and use YubiKey's generated code as a password)
  • You can optionally define your own key server; very useful for Intranets and Extranets
  • It can be used even when the standard Joomla! authentication plugin is disabled, therefore allowing users to only log in using YubiKey (password authentication disabled for extra security)

Two factor authentication (Joomla! 3.2 or later)

  • Require your users to enter their username, password AND YubiKey to log in to your site.
