BlockID + YubiKey

BlockID provides the highest level of identity and authentication assurance, so your employees can securely access your organizations' services with YubiKey. 

 


BlockID ensures the identity of an employee requesting access to your systems with their YubiKey.  


  • BlockID integrates with all YubiKey 5 Series, Security Key Series, and YubiKey FIPS Series. 
  • BlockID leverages advanced Biometrics to secure the identity of your employees who need to access systems with their YubiKey. No more password required. And a hacker cannot reproduce and therefore compromise the analysis and result of a liveness test, for example. The fear of having one's fingerprints copied is gone.  
  • BlockID is 100% contact-free. 
  • Brings employees the highest levels of identity and authentication assurance per the NIST 800-63-3 guidelines, or IAL3 and AAL3.
  • Leverage the BlockID Private Blockchain Ecosystem, our virtually uncompromisable system that initiates peer-to-peer transactions while ensuring the immutability of the data stored encrypted is the answer to risks associated with systems hacking.
  • Through YubiKey, access in the cloud systems and online resources your employees need to conduct business without dealing with vulnerabilities associated to the cloud.

Set up your security key.

Before you can use your security key as a second factor for your 1Kosmos BlockID account, you’ll need to turn on two-factor authentication for your 1Kosmos BlockID account. Then follow these steps:

1. Sign in to your account on 1kosmos.com.

2. Click your name in the top right and choose My Profile.

3. Click More Actions > Manage Two-Factor Authentication.

4. Click Add a Security Key.

5. Enter a name for your security key and click Next.

6. Insert your security key into the USB port on your computer.

If Windows Security asks you to create a PIN, enter one and click OK. Your PIN is stored locally on your security key.

7. Touch the sensor on your security key.

8. When you see “Your security key was successfully registered”, click Done.

From now on, you can use your security key instead of a six-digit authentication code to sign in to your 1Kosmos BlockID account in your browser, 1Kosmos BlockID for iOS, and 1Kosmos BlockID for Android.

 

View and manage your security keys.

To view your security keys:

2. Click your name in the top right and choose My Profile.

3. Click More Actions > Manage Two-Factor Authentication.

You can use your security key as a second factor for your 1Kosmos BlockID account:

  • on 1Kosmos.com
  • on your iPhone or iPad (requires YubiKey 5 NFC or YubiKey 5Ci)
  • on your Android device

Using your security key as a second factor requires:

  • a 1Kosmos BlockID membership with two-factor authentication enabled
  • a U2F security key, like YubiKey or OneSpan

To sign in to your account in the 1Kosmos BlockID apps or in a browser without U2F support, enter a six-digit authentication code from your authenticator app.

 

If you lose your security key.

If you lose access to your security key, you can still sign in to your 1Kosmos BlockID account:

On 1Kosmos.com

When you’re asked for your security key, click Cancel. Then click “Use your authenticator app instead” and enter a six-digit authentication code from your authenticator app.

On your iPhone or iPad

When you see Two-Factor Authentication Required, choose Authentication Code, then enter a six-digit authentication code from your authenticator app.

On your Android device

When you see “Use your security key with 1Kosmos BlockID”, tap the back button on your device and enter a six-digit authentication code from your authenticator app.

Get help if you also lost access to your authenticator app.
