No -- Yubikey is an augmentation to your security but doesn't replace your security -- we're uncomfortable tying these together because if we did yubico's servers being down would mean you're locked out of your vault which is not a very acceptable option...

You could setup your own yubikey auth server ?

Potentially but then you have to dedicate your yubikey to LastPass...

Ok thanks for the reponse.

If you create your own server, i could provide you my rsa key (via pgp)

It could be a could solution to be sur of no being spy by a virus to stole our password.

But i thinks, it could be only a online solution (no probleme for me).
