This package provides the Yubico PAM module. It enables the use of
two-factor authentication, with existing logins and passwords plus
a YubiKey One-Time Password that is validated against an online
validation service. The default is the free YubiCloud, but it is easy
to set up a custom service.
A second mode of operation is available using the YubiKey's HMAC-SHA-1
Challenge-Response functionality. This allows for offline validation
using a YubiKey, for example on a laptop computer. However, this only
works for local logins, not for instance SSH logins.
