Enabling U2F in Fedora

with tags Fedora U2F 2FA yubico -

So the majority of my accounts are secured with two factor authentication. This was all fine until I tried to use my U2F enabled yubi key on a fresh Fedora install and kept getting An Error Occurred when trying to use it to login to both Google and Github. Not the end of the world as both accounts are also setup with time based one time passwords (TOTP) for just this reason.

To enable support for U2F USB devices you need to grab a copy of the udev rules from https://github.com/Yubico/libu2f-host/blob/master/70-u2f.rules and place them in /etc/udev/rules.d/. One quick reboot later and I was able to login using my yubi key again.
