Use hardware-backed YubiKey authentication with Gandi’s domain management tools to secure the critical assets in your domains and get 20% off your YubiKeys.
In Fall 2017, Gandi implemented FIDO U2F on #gandiv5 because we wanted to offer you, our customers, greater account security and help safeguard your domains, email, hosting, and SSL certificates.
FIDO U2F is the strongest, most modern security authentication protocol available today and we feel it offers the best protection against account takeovers and phishing.
We’ve long offered two-factor authentication using a time-based one-time password algorithm (TOTP), and we recommend to anyone concerned about the security of their domains to turn on two-factor authentication. By requiring a second layer of authentication in addition to the password at the time of login, 2FA strengthens security.
The drawback is that having to type the generated code at every login can add a lot of time to your login. The safest and fastest way is with a U2F hardware key and
Trust is crucial for security and Yubico, who partnered with Google to create the U2F protocol, is the trusted leader in hardware U2F keys. That’s why dozens of the most well-known providers of services online use YubiKeys. We’re excited to announce that Gandi users can now get a discount of 20% off orders of up to 3 keys at Yubico.
