The product offers FIDO U2F and FIDO2/WebAuthn support in a USB-C form factor which also offers NFC capabilities. It provides enhanced, modern security for applications, services, and user accounts for both desktop and mobile authentication.
This supplements the existing Security Key NFC in USB-A format, along with Yubico’s other products in the YubiKey range.
While there are many forms of multi-factor authentication (MFA) not all are created equal. FIDO-based authentication allows password-only logins to be replaced with secure and fast login experiences across websites and apps without having to give your mobile number away. It’s also the only method proven to protect against phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.
The Security Key C NFC provides a simple, out-of-the-box security key with the highest grade of modern, physical authentication at a surprisingly low price.
FIDO U2F and FIDO2/WebAuthn authentication are supported by hundreds of popular websites and applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Xbox Live, OneDrive, Gmail, YouTube, Dropbox, Twitter, Coinbase, and many more. A growing list of password managers, social media networks, productivity and business applications, and cryptocurrency exchanges are adding support daily.
What's more, the Security Key C NFC is both water- and crush-resistant for the greatest protection.
By supporting USB-C and NFC you can use the one hardware-based authentication mechanism across desktop, laptop, and mobile devices.
Yubico's other products include the YubiKey 5 Series with a wide range of authentication protocols and form factors and the YubiKey Bio Series which supports fingerprint recognition.
The Yubico Security Key C NFC is available for $US 29.
