The Project

The Beginning

After finding a co-op, the next thing is to figure out what you’ll be working on for the next 3 months. My project? Building my own second factor authentication token.

The need to protect your online accounts is an increasingly important thing. Companies often have security breaches, and passwords (no matter the length) are easily broken. There are already some security tokens available online, but they all have flaws. So, we decided to first build a regular token, and then modify it to make it more user friendly and reliable. This is the grounds for my summer co-op project.

Welcome to the making of RedKey U2F.
