Yubico has tested our FIDO implementation and accepted the Hardware Security SDK in their “Works with YubiKey Program”. By entering the program we have joined a list of companies which hold some of the industry leaders like GitHub, Dropbox, and Twitter.

heise devSec: NFC connection quality for FIDO logins

The quality of the connection depends strongly on how the NFC antenna is integrated in the smartphone. COTECH therefore collects device-dependent data to show the end user the best NFC location.

Nextcloud Two-Factor Authentication

Since Version 11, Nextcloud supports Universal Second Factor (U2F) login within compatible browsers. Finally, Nextcloud‘s Android client provides U2F in version 3.8. On Android, there is no U2F API available in a WebView, Android’s in-app browser view, which is used by Nextcloud for its login flow. COTECH’s Hardware Security SDK changed that. It hides away the difficulties of communicating with security key and provides an easy API for developers. So that Nextcloud can bring U2F to its Androids users.
