ybaas (Yubibomb as a Service) is a Rust microservice that gives you a hosted yubibomb so your users don't have to deal with the complexities of installing and using the command line tool itself. You can use it to pretend to accidentally press your Yubikey while your IRC client has the keyboard focus! Usage example:

$ curl http://localhost:3030/hotp

This project is available on crates.io.



ybaas is available on DockerHub for x86_64 systems. You can run it with podman or docker. For example:

$ podman run -d --net=host docker.io/bowlofeggs/ybaas:latest
$ curl http://localhost:3030/hotp


Linux x86_64 executables are available from GitHub at https://github.com/bowlofeggs/ybaas/releases.

Build from source

You can install Rust, and then build it from source yourself:

$ git clone git@github.com:bowlofeggs/ybaas.git
