Cross-platform application for configuring any YubiKey over all USB transports.



This application provides an easy way to perform the most common configuration tasks on a YubiKey.

  • Swap the functionality between two configured YubiKey slots.
  • Enable or disable the different USB connections (USB modes).

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
