Overview

Ultra-secure hardware authentication key

Simple to use and ultra-secure, the Yubico YubiKey 5 NFC USB-C multi-protocol security key paves the way for a password-free future. The YubiKey 5 NFC offers strong authentication with support for multiple protocols, including smart card authentication and WebAuthn/FIDO2, the new standard for password-free authentication. With the YubiKey 5 NFC, security is enhanced by strong authentication hardware based on public/private key cryptography. In addition, YubiKey is easy to use, fast and reliable and has been proven on a large scale to dramatically reduce IT support costs and eliminate account hacking.

Easy to use, fast and reliable

Users don't need to install anything and can use YubiKey in minutes. And the YubiKey doesn't require batteries or network connectivity, so it's always on and accessible. The IT department can deploy YubiKeys in days, not months. A single key, with its flexible multi-protocol capabilities, can work natively with hundreds of systems. This eliminates the need for costly integrations or separate devices for each system.

  • Supported authentication and cryptographic protocols include FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F), WebAuthn/FIDO2, Personal Identity Verification-compatible (PIV) smart card and OpenPGP smart card.
  • Runs on all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android and Linux, as well as all major browsers.
  • Available in several versions that allow users to connect via USB, NFC or Lightning.

Different authentication options

Relying solely on usernames and passwords puts corporate data at risk. Catastrophic security breaches make global headlines every day. Adopting stronger authentication for employees and customers is essential to minimise the risk of becoming the next victim.

  • Replace weak passwords with a secure "tap-n-go" login
  • Password + YubiKey: adds a "tap-n-go" factor for secure two-variable authentication
  • Multi-Factor: passwordless + PIN: Combines tap-n-go authentication with a PIN, to solve high assurance needs such as financial transactions or prescription submission

    Get the job done!

    I ordered 2 keys and they are working properly.

    However, it would have been nice to be able to use the key to open a Windows session without needing to install the Yubico app and therefore having to create a second account which will require the use of the key, unlike your classic user account.

    good product

    The product is easy to use via the different software. It also allows to store OTP keys (Google Auth type). I just regret the fact that sites do not accept the use of this type of key often enough. And the fact that the second key is not always proposed.
