I'm interested in buying a Yubikey but want to know if you can use a Yubikey to generate a symmetric key for file encryption on selected files on a PC. Or if you need some sort of extension like HMAC-secret to do so with a Yubikey.

1 Answer 1


"You can generate or store a GPG key on the YubiKey, then encrypt and decrypt files using gpg."


  • I see, thx for the link!
