I began to use a very useful (and thus far well-evaluated) tool

which has a partnership with Yubico as a result of which I have 2 Yubico keys 
(each licensed), this was $CAN 45 + 5 shipping and included an upgrade of 
LastPass from free to premium.

The passwords generated by my Yubico keys are authenticated by Yubico's servers

and using my Yubikey I can authenticate from a machine that I do not own (e.g. 
hospital) into my LastPass or account

(note: I stil do not yet put my banking or credit information into LastPass) 
but anyway I would hope that a yubico PAM plugin could allow the user's Yubikey 
to be verified by a suitable external Yubikey validation server (even Yubico's)
