Yubikey Distribution

In order to facilitate the use of SmartAuth, USNH’s multi-factor authentication solution, UNH allows the use of Yubikeys as an acceptable second factor for those who do not have consistent access to a telephone or smart-phone. 

Yubikeys are available commercially from technology vendors. To ensure compatibility, please purchase a branded YubiKey made by Yubico:


As a convenience, UNH IT can provide a Yubikey for use by UNH employees who are unable to use non-Yubikey options to log into SmartAuth​​​​​​​ Requests for these Yubikeys require departmental approval and will result in a $50 chargeback to the requester’s department.
