The default (and assumed) mode for this PAM module is to validate YubiKey OTPs using the YubiCloud. Hell no, I don’t want to authenticate to my home system via some cloud service. I want offline validation using HMAC-SHA1 Challenge-Response authentication.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yubico/stable
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libpam-yubico yubikey-personalization
$ ykpersonalize -2 -ochal-resp -ochal-hmac -ohmac-lt64 -ochal-btn-trig -oserial-api-visible
(btn-trig is optional, but I like having to tap the button to allow the authentication)
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure libpam-yubico
And provide these parameters:
This will add a line for the Yubikey auth method, to /etc/pam.d/common-auth
