Security Key NFC

The Security Key NFC provides the FIDO2 application as well as the U2F application, and can communicate using near-field communication (NFC), allowing for greater flexibility.


The Security Key NFC uses a USB 2.0 interface as well as an NFC interface. All of the applications are available through both interfaces.



The U2F application can hold an unlimited number of U2F credentials and is FIDO certified.


The FIDO2 application allows for secure 1FA and 2FA authentication and can store credentials, allowing for username-less login. Up to 25 resident credentials can be stored, with up to 3 of the credentials being RSA. The credentials on this application can be PIN protected for extra security. 

To find out if an application is compatible with the Security Key NFC, browse to the Works With YubiKey Catalog, and in YubiKey drop-down, select Security Key NFC to only display services that are compatible with it.
