Compatibility with SYMANTEC two-factor authentication

Postby lpthirtythreeandonethird » Thu Feb 26, 2015 2:46 pm

Thousands of people on my employer's campus are being forced to move to the use of SYMANTEC's Two-Factor Authentication, and this experience is apparently far from unique among employees of other large organizations.

This raises the question of LastPass's compatibility and support for the variants required by the SYMANTEC product. IS IT? (Our local IT say that it is not.)

All TIMELY information would be welcome as we prepare for the onset of the controlled chaos this changeover represents.

You can get a VIP enabled YubiKey and configure it to work with LastPass:

From our IT:

I took a look at LastPass' site to confirm, and what jpenny84 is explaining is how to use two-factor to access your LastPass account (which I have tested and can demo for you if you like). LastPass does not support the ability to integrate logging into 3rd party sites that have two-factor.
It also does not appear the LastPass supports Symantec at this time, but I would not be surprise if they do in the near future. But note, that will only be to gain access to your LastPass account, not to be able to login to other websites that use two-factor.

COMMENTS??

For logging into sites, LastPass will fill in the password but you will need your Symantec token for the second factor. This really has little to do with LastPass. As jpenny84 says, it is possible to get a Yubikey that works with Symantec and LastPass.

"As jpenny84 says, it is possible to get a Yubikey that works with Symantec and LastPass." means nothing more than that one can get a Yubikey to provide a two-factor login to LASTPASS (and only LASTPASS), RIGHT?
It does not imply ANY integration with Symantec's two-factor login for thrid party logins, RIGHT?

No, there would be no integration. If your company supports VIP Yubikeys, you could most likely configure an empty slot Yubikeys come with to work with LastPass. There would be one USB key, but it would be performing two separate functions.
