The Twitter app now lets you use multiple hardware 2FA keys

The Twitter app now lets you use multiple hardware 2FA keys

Twitter has had two-factor security based on physical keys, like the Yubikey or Google's Titan keys, for a long time. You've been able to log in with said keys on your phone (assuming your key works with your phone) for a few months. But what if you have to manage your company's PR Twitter account while on the go? Or more typically, what if you have a USB-A key for your desktop and an NFC key for mobile usage?

Google's 2FA Titan security keys are vulnerable to an attack that can clone them

Google's 2FA Titan security keys are vulnerable to an attack that can clone them

According to a recent research paper, Google's two-factor Titan Security Keys are vulnerable to an attack, ultimately resulting in key duplication or cloning. That comes courtesy of a so-called side-channel vulnerability in the chip powering the 2FA key itself, and it requires login credentials, physical access, full disassembly of the key, hours of work, estimated thousands of dollars resources and equipment to reverse-engineer its cryptographic key, and which would be foiled by U2F standards over the long-term anyway. In short: There's not much for most of our readers to worry about.

[Update: Now available] Google Titan security key updated with USB-C

[Update: Now available] Google Titan security key updated with USB-C

Security breaches and phishing attacks are still distressingly common these days, so many of us secure accounts through two-factor authentication (2FA) systems based on SMS or Google Prompt. That's better than nothing, but 2FA codes might not be enough for high-risk individuals. Physical 2FA devices add another layer of security, and Google made available to the general public last year its Titan Security Key Bundle. Initially released with USB-A, NFC, and Bluetooth support, the 2019 edition of Titan has now been updated to support USB-C natively.

Google to sell its own hardware 2FA solution, the Titan Security Key

Google is in full-on enterprise announcement mode, today being the second of three days dedicated to its business-centric Cloud Next conference.

This isn't anything so glamorous as a new phone, tablet, or Chromebook, though: They're a pair of hardware 2FA security keys.
