Yubico Brings Strong Two Factor Authentication to osCommerce

Sunnyvale, CA, September 02, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Yubico has today finalized the integration of the YubiKey into osCommerce, the free and open source e-commerce system used by 200,000+ global web stores. By logging into the system with a YubiKey, order staff and customers can secure the integrity of the customer’s data.

osCommerce Online Merchant is a free and open source online shop e-commerce solution. The system features a rich set of out-of-the-box online shopping cart functionalities that allow store owners to setup, run, and maintain online stores with minimum effort and with no costs, fees, or limitations involved.

To protect customer data, the authentication innovator Yubico has developed a YubiKey plug-in into their web store built on the osCommerce platform.

“We can warmly recommend osCommerce for building advanced e-commerce systems. With the YubiKey, order staff and customers can use the YubiKey to securely access the system,” says Stina Ehrensvärd, CEO Yubico.

The implementation is currently being certified by the osCommerce team. A native support for the YubiKey will be available in Q4 2009 at the release of osCommerce 3.0.

"I am excited to work with Yubico in certifying the YubiKey integration as an add-on for osCommerce Online Merchant store owners to use. The stronger authentication layer and user friendliness of the YubiKey should be of particular interest to store owners who wish to further strengthen the security of their online store backend,” says Harald Ponce de Leon, osCommerce Project Manager.
