Bad News: Two-Factor Authentication Pioneer YubiKey Drops Open Source PGP For Proprietary Version
While I'm sure that Yubico's intentions were good here, this has raised a lot of concerns and has led to other former fans of YubiKeys withdrawing their endorsements of the devices. Encryption is tricky. There are almost always vulnerabilities and bugs -- a point we've been making a lot lately. But the best way to fix those tends to be getting as many knowledgeable eyes on the code as possible. And that's not possible when it's closed source.
