YubiKey 5 Series

Yubico, the leading provider of hardware authentication security keys, has today unveiled the latest update to its hardware-based security keys, the YubiKey 5 Series.

This latest update is the industry’s first multi-protocol security keys supporting FIDO2.

This means that a single security key can support FIDO2, FIDO U2F, smart card (PIV), Yubico OTP, OpenPGP, OATH-TOTP, OATH-HOTP, and Challenge-Response.

The YubiKey 5 NFC goes a step further by making all this available using both NFC and USB for a seamless tap-and-go authentication experience across desktop, laptop and mobile with FIDO2.

The NFC feature is even supported on the iPhone by the LastPass password management app.

YubiKeys are a quick, easy, and affordable way to protect your Google account, Facebook, GitHub, Dropbox, Salesforce admin account, and much more, or to harden your Mac or Windows login credentials.
